Recommends it for: fans of the new american poetry, or beat style, or even New York School, or Black Mountain even.

Interesting 1971 Anthology from Bolinas California as edited by
now local Portland writer Joel Weishaus. The book is an interesting example of a temporal-geographic cross-fertilization of some of the New American Poets:
Robert Creeley, Ebbe Borregard, David Meltzer with some
other varied types: Lewis Warsh, Joan Kyger, Tom Clark.

I love some of the goofiness of this stuff. Ebbe Borregard's
27 Songs is particularly light hearted. A "Tung" like dracula asleep in its coffin.

And Tom Clark's Diplodocus
