the solo lafarge decoder by J.D. Nelson

the solo lafarge decoder

I am the salamander in the window well

bacon loves the asphalt
the lasting salad names a wedge

the white eye syndrome of the rockies
the fossilized ornament is the universal laugh

most of the mountain
were you ahead of the light?
