Leaf (a recto) faces a blank leafLeaf is followed by 21 blank leaves and the blank back endpaperLeaf mounted with seven holograph manuscripts written on seven scraps of paperThe woman that sells candies and apples; the “red liquid heart of the earth” Signal bellthings not in the gorilla and the chimpanzeeOne good of knowing the great politics of natureI admire a beautiful woman All moves unwittingly or halts and stands.
