The Little – Wed Jul 29 03:22:20 2009

July 29, 2009

The Same continues. I didn’t like it for awhile, now I like it again after some time away from it. Something’s happening in there, but what it is ain’t exactly clear.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

the little island at the bases of
the islands of creation · down again ·
in fact · in thought · in any zone · beneath
the boys were much refreshed · the embryo
exactly ascertained · the boys were to
effect a beneficial nature · had
contrived a kangaroo beneath · the boys
were so delighted with the southern forms ·

the most alike · the most terrific · and
the two sometimes alone · a little hut
above · the condor lays a couple of
the other boys · the flowers · how unlike
the flowers of the others · no escape ·
the same conditions · from the hunger of
the islands of the raging bears · the boys
were much relieved · the gardens · and below ·

the great creator · on the island of
amusements · just begun · a tiny well
in ridicule · possessed within the day
in making so perfect a kangaroo ·
beneath the very first appearance of
the land within the body · cocoanuts ·
the boys desire · modify the fruit ·
desirous of the womb · the other side ·
