A quote torn from the headlines of Charles Olson's "Projective Verse" essay...

“Is” comes from the Aryan root, as, to breathe. The English “not” equals the Sanskrit na, which may come from the root na, to be lost, to perish. “Be” is from bhu, to grow.

interesting, eh?

You'll have to explain it to me before you leave Santiago.

Don't go!!!
