SOS:

nil aid nets.

ill life, no gem.

 

oh, am I alive?

war trap.

 

deity meme

esteem so.

grace,

vast sum,

to helixes

atoned.

 

I, hard nut,

sad as tundra.

 

hide not?

as exile, hot.

 

must

save

cargos.

 

meet, see me,

my tied part,

raw.

 

evil aim;

a home

gone.

 

fill.

listen.

dial in:

SOS.
