Diagnostic Criteria of Disabling Condition

the schedule of hollow // the how so how

so // the daily erection of stoplight / the all

yellow slither // the this or that but not

everything // the untimely times / candid 4

couch / bogus 4 papersheet // so body road

/ so mind rockslide / so honk & horn &

finger / so trucks to shovel / so everyrock

of rock color & dirt bottom // the oh-well

shape of the body in bed&bed&bed&bed&

/ the solitude shape of oh / the bottomness

of well / so shovel palm / so handle it / so

rock trickle // so thinkdown like loose dirt
