Lipton’s Journal/February 7, 1955/524
Acts of the body. Walk, talk, fuck, pluck, suck, cluck, balk, buck, cluck, duck ache—If I go on with this I’ll be busy for the rest of the day so many words open out. For example: fuck and fickle (the I in fucking who is never constant) suck and sickle (the I who does not speak while sucking but has nonetheless a sharp tongue). Some time when I’m worn out I’m going to play with all the simple variations of body verbs and the body nouns, and body actions like “bake” which come out of this.
