VIRUSES WERE BY ACCIDENT?

Cancer tests… brown blood.. live babies.. proof of virus. vaccine? Bio-control the London conference.. it was out sheep cattle and animals have wild system…. blood time brown blood. MAN cancer case and plant. methods of pest growing strenuous exercise—breed could land by killing or weakening cancer anti-bodies on a foam runway would stil retain adaption to African way of life… In all sizes virus drugs make cancer… blood supply.. cold virus rays cancer meat and protein case.

Brown attempted to make such a deal with plants and animal over thousands of years

Unusual beings dormant in cancer feel towards the day already overpopulated with hungry cows.

Cut-up of prose poem ‘Stalin’ by Sinclair Beiles

FROM SAN DIEGO UP TO MAINE

Solemn Accountants are jumping ship, sir…All of them, sir… In the last skimpy surplus, sir… ‘Room for one more outside, sir’ they said and plunged Seventh Teen Age Future Molotov Cocktails… Last seen swimming desperately in sewage…

Allies wait on knives…Valiant Crowns drew a short 22 and Heavy Commitments….The Caribbean swells to a roar…A Negro snapped the advantages….Street Gangs Uranian born up from a headline of penniless migrants in the face of appalling conditions:

“Out Show window and we’re Proud of it.”

Her Fourth Grade Class screamed in terror when I looked at the dogs and I looked at the pavement… decided the pavement was safer… Stale streets of yesterday policemen back from shadows to embrace his assailant…pretty familiar. Talk to my medium….Remember my medium of appalling conditions conditi ons?:

Suicide by teen ager…ice food…same day…Blue Note wherever you go… Dietary delusion of death in Tanganyika or was it?

Only this should have been obvious from Her Fourth Grade Class: Only live animals have write door…. Distant…

Secure it firmly with steak sized chucks of cripple drug and throw it in a Liz replica synthesized from cabbage….

Who was Rape and Idleness? Anyone over homicide big enough to take Punishment Wisconsin…Milwauki convicted of later and lesser crimes pudgy and not pretty…The Words included assault murder stratosphere and his feet devoid of reality.

Will Hollywood never learn?

Unimaginable disaster …Royal Kights Teen Age Future Time.

  1. I am a great fan of Burroughs and Gysin….I´m using the cut-up technique words and paintings…..its really amazing what can come out of it.

  2. The “From Sandiego up to Maine”, cut up article is really interesting. Its almost like the article was cut open to look at it’s roots and true meaning.

  3. No talent is harsh. Do you anything about the beat generation? get with it or just stay silent. thanks :)
