Tutorial: Desire by Sanjeev Sethi

Jumbled emotions cloud desire:
my innermost itches for your
cincture. Those we pine for are
unusually shy. Privation intuits
them as prized. You may glean
platinum under your pillow, I’m
good with gewgaws. On an anti
-tsundoku drive one is kosher
with comics. Dennis the menace
offers enough to chew on till
meditative goop dries. Years have
enjoined the self to accept ullages.
More is for morons.
