8. Head tilted back between the headboard slats. Eyes glass boxes filling up with light. Later, drained to a blue-gray, the color of good government.
7. Thus, we see that commodification is a function of local necessity. a. As Angelenos collect percolating shade in shallow pans, to leach the arsenic out of the light. b. “And then I buried it.” “Where, exactly? And when?” “In the chest. Insertion point at the base of the throat. You were still asleep.” “But what is it, exactly? I mean, I can’t figure out its precise extent. I mean, I can feel it there sometimes, like stitches, or sometimes like a flanged or branching bone.”
6. Cross-hatchings of street noise and the Minotaur with his boy’s body. Narrowing. Rib cage the verge of a canoe. Armpit a whiff of pencil lead.

4. osculation: a. The act of kissing. A kiss. b. Math. A point where two branches of a curve have a common tangent and extend in both directions of the tangent. c. To the ankles. Or to the knees. Or just unzipped enough.
3. Charmeuse chemise. A shuddering fall. Miss Adelaide Hall on the chaise longue singing I ain’t much caring / Just where I will end.

Pocket Symphony is the fourth full-length album by French duo Air. The album was released in March 2007 and features collaborations with Jarvis Cocker and Neil Hannon. Pocket Symphony also incorporates some of the Japanese instruments Godin recently learned to play from an Okinawan master musician: the koto (also referred to as a Japanese floor harp) and the three-string, banjo-like shamisen. However, a press release claims that "conventional instruments continue to play a great role" in the duo's music. The album features art by Xavier Veilhan.
