Dear Socially Inept Thirsty Dudes Trying to Holla at the Club,

I hope that helps.

To the right, the threshing floor, where beat takes possession of man, heads spasmodically bob, hands raise to the firmament of smoke overhead. Exit the place with grace, back home, to the comfort of a small room with a red accent wall, and the patient cursor blink at the end of unfinished paper, waiting…
