been at it at least weeks probably at this point to say it not usual but optimistic

 

dead hand spread way out beside me like a filet of dead hand

 

to show whats inside maybe

 

which isnt spare hands in case you thought

 

industry ed slumps around near where i curl in a cement crag of place dreaming in and out of mesas and other pebblescapes whenever they put me under to tryn operate again

 

despite and cursing as they call it healthcare in this country

 

well save that hand yet boys

 

shouts industry ed

 

feeling a bit peckish boys

 

may get a snicker from the machine boys

 

and a gatorade boys

 

always calling himself and me boys like when he seems to get tired he says i seem to be getting tired boys

 

and rattles pockets for change

 

and stays out of reach of my filet of dead hand knowing i may yet well attempt a strangle even though they are far from through with me and lowly hand chunks far asunder

 

some days my hand looks like many others like none

 

he leers near when he wakes up enjoying it as they parcel me out into more niblets but no more of this old david rice american mc escher stock routine business at this point

 

no sir

 

sink in and out of seeing hospital as cement basin kind of construction hotel type of deal

 

elevator plying the outside edges sucking up and down from garage level to upper garage

 

people falling off the edges trying to climb into the floors from the outside

 

industry ed saying be right back boys

 

keeps bringing me spare hands piling up like balloons and flowers in a concession pile for a younger person than myself more impressionable perhaps or with

 

a man with nothing to lose adds tv set a man in los angeles with nothing to lose

 

watching more climbers fall commuters trying to enter building from all sides outside which is not a building but a skull of building and should be rather treated and um venerated as such

 

another shot of novocaine into yours truly filet o dead hand

 

yours truly ducking under into bowl o fuzz where

 

industry ed will dress my head

 

sundae style and serve to very next party

 

family vacation style

 

— sorry for delay boys will love to transmit more when can.
