Sky Raft (Hermitage) (Poems and Fragments) (Set II)

Sky Raft (Poems and Fragments) (Set III)

Bounty Hunter (Fragments) (Set II)

It’s not like a bounty hunter can’t work for the “officials”. Even though our existence is prohibited, if one is willing to bring in the “right” persons, toleration changes to adulation. In secret of course. “Officials” get their guys, take … Continue reading
