David Sutherland

If there is an existing standard,
you should be referred to without modification
Respectfully: when neither subject nor object has noun,
the formal "I" is applicable
"I" have space,
"I" have eyes,
"I" have teeth in an empty skull.
Goliath takes possession of the first
and pins the hare with a superlative of the second
(the soft objects - adjectives), as for the rest,
fuck it,
the alternatives are none.
