Nicholas Grider

in and out of being there but still alert enough to lean forward when falling, failure means November is pocket change and hostile music, advances in technology have produced you a new meaning and a new tongue to go with it, the tongue says never mind, oh, whoops, I thought, uh, I was going, what I was trying to say was, I thought Choose Life was still on the menu? Side dish of cold grease, take it from here, brothers and sisters
