Brain candy fantasies produce new cephalostat needs.

Cruising past porcine towards obese, we hunger for a thin

electric blanket, speedily dialing pyrostat needs.

Grasping the magnificent Zenith Space Command remote,
a young generation develops blepharostat needs.

Developments, double-wides, exurbs, zoning transport nodes.
Grant-seeking scientists assay microhabitat needs.

On the margins, the oddest random fires flare. Infernal
machines, propaganda of the deed feeds attentat needs.

After Jack and Martin, after Bobby in a hotel
kitchen hall, drop by drop we’re flooded with hemostat needs.

resistance. Two terminals fulfill all rheostat needs.
