Strong issue with prose poems by Kenneth Koch, selections from Jerome Rothenberg's LORCA VARIATIONS, James Graham's meditation on his balls ("My balls are two iron ingots caught in a vise... two green felafels waiting for the sauce"), and Hal Sirowitz''s childhood poems: "Don't swim in the ocean while it's raining,/ Mother said. Lightening can hit the water,/ & you'll be paralyzed. You don't like/ to eat vegetables. Imagine having/ to spend the rest of your life being one..." (from "Damaged Body"). Highly recommended.--John Stickney
