I began accumulating these 1000 fragments while at work at the Living Batch Bookstore in Albuquerque in the mid ‘80's. They were on scraps of paper which I stuffed into my pockets or jotted down in my notebooks. Single discontinued entries. I accumulated them in a straw basket and when the time came, I mixed them up good and pulled them out random, typed them in that order and numbered them. Here are six such batches. The title of each section is simply one of the fragments, as is the book’s title.
