of way. This "page"--probably the first one I've seen that isn't neatly
circumscribed by that term--is a tickertape of pathos: a libidinal torrent
insterspersed with worried quests for work and health, incrementally

("go" whatever), abiding mysteries, and, once in a blue moon, a
well-crafted query...
