The Fifty Cent Tour

audio



stories
told in fractions
taken up
& wound around 
eager reels

life sounds 
captured mid air
taken in
& spun around
played by ear

  2. If they are not told in fractions, then they are most certainly listened to in fractions in my house! I can never sit still to hear a whole show.
