San Francisco. Wowindows Press. 1969. Ed. of 650. Softcover. Book Condition: Fine. unpag.
Chapbook with poems by Douglas Blazek and an original serigraph by T.L. Kryss, its colours still blazing. Hand-printed in an edition of 650 at Twowindows Press in San Francisco. The paper quality and type are still pristine, framing a poetry that holds up just as well. Blazek's poems speak directly to you, in broken pieces of imagery or thoughts interrupting themselves with a linebreak or sudden volte towards another matter. If the line were to go on, stay too long or complete the picture, it would trip into something more than language can hold; so Brazek skirts around that break-place, watching and collecting what he sees in little pieces:
I sit at night
on my pile of coal
in a deserted
while my eyes ride
on the moon.
