New forms of life are germinating in the vast, rusty metal racks of the ruined city.

- William S. Burroughs

Editor's Transcription

[recto:]
"Wife," said I, upon one of
these occasions, "why speak more
of that secret closet, when
there before you hangs con-
trary testimony of a master-
mason, elected by yourself, to
decide. Besides, even if there
was a secret closet, secret it
should remain, and secret it shall."
- Melville

[recto poem, as edited:]
I've stood at the
mountain crest and felt the thrill
he must have felt, below
T his long ago.
I heard it how he journeyed there
With breezes tossing
at each changing
Which marks the haunts
where his youth had
A to lie
T the long
sky.

- E A Guest

[verso:]
David Pearce
they do say
went broke
for the last,
of four times,
that time due also
to the contemporary loss
of one more cargo

by the maritime law of
port of proposed sale
deviated fr[o/m]
