PLANET JAZARANE Planet Jazarane - where rustling herds of marching embers, ooze a masquerade of tickled trenches in seething dominion, torched waterfalls, nourished by zephyr mastery, lurch languid in a godly zeal of paradigm vanity, sandcastle-shaped serpents trigger-spew a soaring horizon of tangled theaters in screeching flower cages, scalded in sodden shadow, the swooping goose machine scatters its crinkled chimes in a sensory mist of ragged tigers and skating vulture dust, the canvas hermit - nurtured in chalice, furtive in fountain, splashed by ruby - as the wilted maestro sits in a solitude ceremony of feathered ferocity - the pianist's final flourish. PLANET JAYGORM On Planet Jaygorm, skittle creatures ricochet plumes of alchemy mutants, skyline overtures in bleak exodus, squeal their glistening contours in blundered hysteria and disfigured glee, distilled in a gallant gory remnant, the jolted wanderings of loaded crystal chambers, fickle mutiny in supernatural solace, as the jarring sorcerers etch ephemeral their supine shards of howling epilogues in burlesque assembly, the crooked stars in hooded vaults, yearn to bedevil their tawdry transcripts - unkempt for the ether. PLANET YIZZARO On Planet Yizzaro, crawling corridors of glazed limpets in clustered folly, cascade a symphony blossom to tantalize the tattered artist in a towering squalor of lampooned puppets ablaze, plunged in feral escapade, a dalliance interlude of watercolor vessels drip their fluttered meadows for willow portraits in starry infancy and shimmering bliss, hounded by the giddy margins, the creaking valley - listless for rhapsody, mutters its hollow blessings in a saintly pattern of glimmering sapphire - the treasured muse in slender desertion.
