(i) most tasteless
Joshua Grant

taste sweet                                Sarah who has come to Italy in hopes
the doors are cracking            then bleeding            and the face of a doll
the taste of a room                  Sarah sees images of a woman named Sugar


taste sweet                               during their carnal alliance Sarah regains her sight hearing and sensitivity
to salt as these senses were needed in order for her to foster a taste for the lovemaking


this is where logic and taste fall completely off the map                       One of the nuns
takes a staff and                                                                         your guess is as good as mine


I was confused but it bears little similarity chemically to                       One of the nuns
takes a staff and                                                                         your guess is as good as mine


taste sweet                                  Sarah who has come to Italy in hopes
that interactions between taste stimuli and the horrible deeds done by a woman
might make for a film that is more sickening and saccharin than            One of then nuns
takes a staff and                                                                                                               Sarah


might regain her sight hearing
and sensitivity to salt as these senses were needed in order for her to foster a taste for the lovemaking
                                                                                                   One of the nuns
takes a staff and                                                                                                               Sarah
sees images of a woman named Sugar
