                               (with Linda Lynch
bearing                                    the burden of
deposits                              going in to/tapping
                             where is the
                             presume
                             in the
                             exhume
to take out/extract (extra-dition)/take away
how we carry ≥ carriage
             the carriage of removal
                 does belonging belong

choking on tide the accomplices look the other way
from upsweep this nutritive smear
a pollination pocked with lynx tongue
flagellation buried in the churn
