Special occasion bonus check community service mixer election confetti budget meeting three-way phone call to be the one speaking. What’s this for? The Del Mar Fair clogs the highway for weeks. To know that an apparently unbroken expanse of land is overlaid with invisible lines demarcating the pattern of future development is to perceive it in a very different way than one would otherwise. I want sharpshooters now! / Toy noise / Stiff little finger poke head up / Put punctuation marks @ the end of their life / Multifeature pulping memory / ‘s permanent — especially when it’s wrong / Loaded for brains / Kings will burn / Dreams for sale / Target biggies / History, that projection of saints / Still working the rope lines / Remember carny postage stamp hoopla / Posey tilt-a-world / You are the vulture / The Stepford U.S. / High wire-actorish / Celebrity! / A temporary erection / Do you want a career or an archive? / The grand-daddy of all / Like my broadcast?

What is the subject of pleases?” It seems as if Scalapino is also saying this: dependent origination / malleability of animals and humans / use of Nagarjuna: he does not intend to imply that reality is nothing at all / lack of existence just means lack of essence or boundaries / humor: panting like a dog (Guimaraes is researching how before modernity, Nature could be funny). Like, some 200 million years ago, an increase in atmospheric CO2 caused acidification of the oceans and global warming that killed off 76 percent of marine and terrestrial species.
