Back in Spring 2008 I made a much longer piece about John for the MQ (Maybelogic Quarterly) magazine, but I chose to shrink the article after careful reconsideration. Since Spring 2008 we have all seen the insurance companies and banks - fattening the housing market for loan snakes'. - Steve Fly.

"this is what they mean
when they talk about the blues,
this is what the blues is all about:
"fattening frogs for snakes"
& watching the mother fucking snakes
slither off with the very thing you have made--John
, Fattening Frogs for Snakes"

"Olson also shares Pound's thesis that economic and

gain rather than the harbor's general welfare.

in the present shame of
the wondership stolen by
ownership. --Charles Olsen, Letter 3":9.

The Tale of the Tribe--Michael Bernstein."
(Fly, looking around his room for his copy of "The
Tale of the Tribe
," to find the page-number of this
quote, but amidst all the damn drums, turntables,
wires, books and weed, I can't seem to find the TTOTT.
