52 pp.

An epic in invented language, with a phonetic centering/motif in the title "ZIFF." Although "a project of DreamWorld BBS," it seems to be the solo work of editor Bill Paulauskas. This falls squarely in the tradition (?? or shadow?) of Hugo Ball's Dada sound poetry and Kurt Schwitters' Ursonata: "Huzi ZIFF ziinentif ezi ZIFF oziezie ZIFF ZIFF ZIFF/ zizicant if/ ZIFF ZIFF o// Hif zinif// Zietniw tziest."--luigi
