ASK DIEGO

(my work is mine or it is no good)

I do not think of cute ideas to defend / and I do not think I have to invent strange things / and I am not worried about the fact that a bloke / has tried to do something that / resembles – reminds / it seems just like – it’s identical – you copied / I’ve had this in mind for nearly two years / he did it three years ago / it’s a coincidence – I swear I didn’t know / swear to God – cross my heart / ask Diego
