Janice Derossett Janice Derossett said: "It is told in the folk/ oral traditions, which is very interesting. So, this is a story that wants to collapse our modern notions of what a book should be. --Which would take you back to the 1700's and Gulliver's Travels-- hmmm-- "

Frank O'Hara
“After the first glass of vodka
you can accept just about anything
of life even your own mysteriousness
you think it is nice that a box
of matches is purple and brown and is called La Petite and comes from Sweden
for they are words that you know and that is all you know words not their feelings or what they mean and you write because you know them not because you understand them because you don't you are stupid and lazy and will never be great but you do what you know because what else is there?”
Frank O'Hara, The Collected Poems of Frank O'Hara
