I point with pride like a bolt out of the blue last but not least not that it's the heat but the humidity: I point with pride rubber like bolt out blue rubbed last but not least rubato it's not the heat rubella it's the humidity Rubicon busy as bee rub-a-dub-dub Tried & true trite twisting of raw silk into rubbed threads, the Onions is not on onion-skin. The houses were flat, empty, & got nothing done. We'd visit them, no one, inside their houses. No one would come out. A big fat red heart right there on the fancy hollow bed image in the ersatz teenager's grim trimmed room. That heart-red picked up in a red mat. Is the house of General Hesketh, a friend of General Henry Ford, insulated? What was the furnace like in the suburbs in 1955. Cardboard clapboard hopscotch room. The play den family laundry room, it wasnt a memory. Theyd say the prices--fifteen/five, nineteen/nine, that's out of our range. This room's a yella for a most happy fella. There's the parquet terrazzo raised-up duplex part, watch your step. Velvet cords, don't go in there, it's not a museum. Quiet calm down, off grass, families entering. To behoove fiduciarily, I have nothing to say about this dim bedeviled memory but that on the Island there were no trees about the houses of no one.

A child in latency can speculate easily on the advisability of a house. Two haloed mourners, when all was condensed extravagance as if in myth, & every man lived, and every woman did, were painted in in an age. Remember the bleak woman in housedress & slippers walking back and forth on the road unusually to get & with her mail as if the road were a hospital corridor. Rubbing memory's structure a bit with a firm & regular stroke, annual rings, kinds of pines, tapped tree.
