She bought me shoes six times.

Please, please. No, please. Yeah, alright.

Who fucked who how many times?

The river bends and breaks, falls.

The river does not stop flowing.

Waiting, Joan kept drinking, cooking, living.

Walter hated the steak, and wine.

I lost her shoes six times.

I've been awake since four, dammit.
