SUNSET TO THE WEST

Swimming in the Irish Sea with my mother, watched from the stony shore by my poor, dying father, languishing in wound-healing expiation as a laughter of seagulls flew past in shark mask replicas, I turned my body away from the beach towards the peach-stone of a black-hole being slowly sucked into the sea's watercress-hives and drowned and saw that bonfire jaws is Holy, bonfire jaws is bought and sold and silting gold leaking out in all directions like mc squared = swimming in the Irish Sea with my mother, watched from the stony shore by my poor, dying father, languishing in wound-healing expiation as a laughter of seagulls flew past in shark mask replicas.

You'll get more interest if you drip feed your stuff in. A mass upload on the same day results in all but the last one hidden in the background.
