YogaShe goes to sleep late.
She sits alone,
Listening to ambient-drone
In her midnight-blue room.

No, poor little Tito is destined to die in these gray slab streets like a scrawny, diseased pigeon, pitiful and alone.
So it’s to be expected that when Vivian Andromeda walks straight out of the clouds and into my life and smiles at me, smiles at me (except it’s probably just out of politeness, might even be a smirk, and anyways there’s no reason to get my hopes up because from what I’ve seen in the halls Vivian Andromeda would even smile at a rabid dog) I
