Vancouver special

Yes successful attempts at ugliness or stifling.
Common questions for common answers.
How may I dislodge my friends from the inequality?
How will we destroy the rent?
How little sea won't be uncharted,
and for what? What can we afford?
How may I stifle the feel
of right here? How can I make you 

naked? Outside the apartment and yes of it.
Gangliness of a small patio, concrete baby.
Nothing dull freed from beneath.
Vinyl siding soothes nonsense into absorption.
Metal stacked into floor joists worse undoes
the city. Can you see the houses, the forest?
Could you move to the West? A little less?
