(to send something to Angie & Laura, i used 2 printer jam rescues as my old printer was breaking down; the first printer jam happened when i was trying to print out something entitled “rescued document,” which turned out to be thousands of question marks produced by the computer without my input. the rest of the text was, as you see, taped on there by some thieves.
a second printer jam occurred when i was trying to print a poem on dams from Practical Water to send to Jared Stanley. after extracting the page from the printer, i taped an old tea-stained draft of a poem i never completed for that book which i still had in my folder. it was occasioned by trying to imitate drips in a lava beds cave in northern California. b hillman July 16, 2013)
