In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:


One sighs heavily down the telephoneAnother pours the assassin’s quicksand

One leaves the garrison lonely as a bulletAnother fills white tubs with kerosene

One is surveyed from the border glassAnother guards against the darkness of trees

One clinks to the enemy’s thimbleAnother fantasizes death in a flyway

One slugs the sitter at his pianoforteAnother takes shade under a fig tree

One discerns bloodiness from the sirenAnother brandishes the manacles

One juggles dust between his handsAnother combusts the basecamp [End Page 34]
