18 June 2007. Bright Monday, cool bay wind. Colombo bread van pulled in at an angle, 7-eleven lot. Odd green and lemon-yellow strip on white field, image of loaf and roll. Kurt Schwitters on the dunes at Scheveningen...the Ursonate--a poem made up only of sound...

A peasant dress with light-colored apron, fleur-de-lys on the Russian front--weave of tiny violets... Carrying a basket of fruit, lemon, fig, olive--just the beginnings, just the beginnings...
