Steve Dalachinsky
as collage / p29


something materializes
it will become a part of me
a word    -   JEWISH
becoming a thinking human being
looking up at the sky
searching form    becoming feeling
the richness of insight
of what one can do

my patterns becoming


i go cute space
when in for their prefix
lunch  & when i want a foreigncon champion 
campeones del mundo 


me - hello –

yes it is – (my 7th day of a severe kidney stone attack)
- wow you’re as hard to get a hold of as a pickle in a pickle drive – 
(a new one on me)
