Dan Thomas-Glass, “Dunkalectics”

Dan Thomas-Glass

crunch-time hurts samples

Manhood kicked
line idea
seldom slightly-above-average
guy ball blatantly
shoot hard
mildly better
slow win
break system
owners line muscle mirrors
terrible illusions
looking destroying working feeling recurring
Magic disappears
penned suit
quote Profit
score money delusion money
money crunch
choke Russell
accept accept accept
inspire video zone radio TV

stunning imprint
minded injured
to not disappear
now swollen injured suckered glistening
knocking minutes literally
leading built beauty air
winning time
injure hiding seriously
blowing liability
hurting damage
feels line
deal greatness pain
things played
cry letters
slow anybody
younger critics
three victory shot heads
How to Disappear Completely

Bad-footed stubborn sweaty followers

passion phenomenal
Bob blowing player
pulled crazy night
franchise desperately Brawl
Company map

final cruise scored positive
loss wrap show blueprint

flash seed run snuffed frustrated seed eliminated seeds
sides rallied
staged marketing
aired lambaste
shots side shots Nothing
staff nowhere nowhere chip
Boy grips Thunder

faithful witness
class tattoo irony
Morning debacle
alpha-male closed buts
road home

forget play hit pick
talking clock personnel
the disappearance of
team Phil Tyrone challenge
assistant average trips
occasions toughest shooters

came felt gave Commercial
vanquishing franchise
stunned celebrating movie
Gary Europe beyond clear
Curly ball
play chance
frothing Heaven Herald ‘breakfast’
unduly presumptuous sumptuously good breakfast
energy bit
tough lunch
defeat following survivor
Beating define doubt
worth loss
honestly growth hope Band-Aid
compete cynicism
grow positions
fabulous Rod doing guys
guys waste floor Heat
aging pin key
well ball tied
load ball
ball nice
ultimate gun ball wealth
Grew beanstalk crunchtime
beat moves ladder
opened squeezably
one-handers two back exhilaration
pulled down
blessed young early grow
flickered nice
fewer greatness
better best charge face
might beat inspiration
spark bloated beat annihilated column
immensely firmly fold
keen long material
old makeup
heading doesn’t-get-it-ness paid glory
much Johnson stunk humiliation
anybody inconveniences change
respond career stature rules
principles model thing
ads Godzilla tired
worse beloved enigmatic heroic okey-doke
swore limp Paul
Closing drive anew
crutch killer
trail flat unfiltered
leap grown pivotal physical hard
in ground our off glorious wish
court snowflakes sock-‘em
able intangibles battle end
franchise-record fast-break stops
run back critical
insists tonight
lines resemble staircase
point hinges view defining sorry
myself legs asserted done
guards silky sexy youth
pitted schooling pile
death elders beauty peek
bull-rush not himself
fight push uncertain move
close owns members businesses
finances built plan appears
owners permission Honda
question Anaheim
disappear today.
