the closet our comic crumbling

possible with camera to the clocked masonry

to two prisoners the by-accident

news in black gold on A

never in on an I

gave his smoked opium a hooked spectacle

or scent to head million

the town-tricked journey

smuggled out of war

here’s who guns whether comes

weeks Oklahoma better better life I.W.W. even Socialist

working Oklahoma best both I.W.W. estimated struck

Wichita Old Bill Boyd incriminating eleven state
