Soft other abreast gaiac omphalos
From and to which to wish the swell
Eternal recurval return
Beloved be love ed
Where from to which foamy
or forest shore can we or you or you or in you
Seek sweeter fruition
Hail or hoist cumuluscent curve
which come here
In response to Marcel Duchamp's ‘The Bush’ 1910-1911.
