When was the first time first saw California? Who was the number of eucalyptus nights in California? Who was the broken state of tedious visions? How could the dirty hour with the lime green pool in the largest population? Will telephone poles crows, at mouth of Sacramento River, now what? Swell thighs, stubborn month of bottle guile, moldy crusts of magazines jumpy? Did exactly nobody, high typical modern Saturdays? Hard copy or copies negotiating overly somebody, amazing the ships the desire the water? Back to stairs she will contained, so popping so luckily, or unluckily? Typewriter just broke, somebody $20, somebody had to? More about Fresno to Stockton, what Ben Ehrenreich recall dumplings in Palestinians? Could the stickers and the foxtails wearing the dresses of West Texas aiming? How was it happening the blue collared lizard, the blue shirted skink, why? Maybe soon sleep and transparent lines of sleep? Not the second California in the rearview mirror, did bad and tomorrow morning?
