MvSS:


MaSS/MeSS/MiSS/MoSS/MuSS

to MUSS something - it can be straightened out
MOSS following the contour of the surface -
MISS something - residing in memory and its contour
but to MESS something - it can be straightened out
MASS undifferentiated beneath the surface

in these meanings, entanglement related to dishevelment - perhaps towards,
perhaps from, an orderly (if not ordered) state -

on one hand, CHAOS, on the other, something MUSSED or a MESS -
almost an implication of the ALL in the domestic, inhabitation

MOSS following the contour of the surface -:to MUSS something - it can be
straightened out:mass/mess/miss/moss/muss:in these meanings, entanglement
related to dishevelment - perhaps towards, :almost an implication of the
ALL in the domestic, inhabitation ... doll is on one hand, CHAOS, on the
other, something MUSSED or a MESS - on we t flesh, it's doll? I Consider
the following again, your mass/mess/miss/moss/muss ... ghost comes me
beneath your cloth! Your holding is soaked, written, erased. - Consider
the next smearing of your thinking skin: simple qbasic programs tending
towards MUSS or submerged stria tion, fractal-pathing, 1994:

double acquisitions of language by the world, messes and musses of masses,
ontologies constructed on abject epistemologies, double-double, ontologies
which _leak_ followed by the mess we've made of it all -:world is messed,
we say muss, mess-unbelievable, clean the dishes, empty the pots :world is
mussed, we say mess, straighten it out, starch the linens, fold the
sheets:moss :: tomb:miss :: lost
