from Cold Genius

Aaron Kunin
History is the soft medium into which you cut; love "is the" instrument that cuts. "Love is the" drill.
"Love" cuts to "the" depth of "the" jokes "which" flow out. Puns "flow out" gaily from "the" wound made by "love."
Yeah that's what it's like.
"History" "cuts" everywhere with equal ease but "love" "cuts" deep "into" living flesh.
