curse, coaster, coozie
(the direction changes, not the current)

ultimately for & eat
(correct & heat)

to three threads, as if

god thought up a gesture just for me.
It’s very possible I’ve seen this movie before ....
no need to cut til need to cut.

Everyone’s giving me a little too much space ....
Oh! I made it myself!

Turd to split, to skit off, scoot over!
Can’t shake, crisp, cluck

related to flight, of the earth in earthquakes.
Underneath transitioned to the whole of it.
Country, district to sphere,

use in old chemistry
