Urban Graffiti Mix #16 by Mark McCawley on Mixcloud
Love. Sex. Desire. Obsession. Smell the flowers while you can. Truth. Freedom. Justice. Anarchy. Poetry of love. Fiction of desire. Politics of sex. Dope. Music. Outlaw. Jazz. Smell the flowers while you can. Push the envelope. Transgress the status quo. Meat. Blood. Memory. Smell the flowers while you can. Nothing is as it seems. Even the flowers.
