If I wanted to be here without claiming here, without painting here-all the girls might have hair above lip. Without building here. Bleeding here seems enough and without defining here for the purposes of bringing us together. Air stands so close and there is no way to explain that, no shapes to employ. I've wondered about the possibilities for hovering and I'd like to try a few scenarios here.
