This book is interesting, although a little rough. First published in 1991, It's basically two parts: half poetry, and half a long-form interview, all written in 1987. The poetry is all pretty loose and free-form, and also includes a bit of prose and some letters. There are no titles, breaks, or sections whatsoever, so it reads like a hundred pages of stream-of-consciousness dialogue.

The poetry is very hit or miss. There are some incredibly solid pieces in here, very raw, powerful, emotional bit

Im not sure which way is the smartest way to read this entry from the Rollins catalogue. One from None is essentially a two part book with the majority being his random thoughts captured at both opportune and inopportune times on his journeys.

You think you have it bad, Henry will remind of worse.
This book made me stop feeling sorry for myself & all
the fucked up shit I had done to myself or that others had
done to me. I read three of his book in a row & still have more to go.

I liked this one a lot. It's early stuff compared to most of his work that I've read, and the copy I had included a lengthy interview I enjoyed as much as the rest of the book.
back when i thought he had something worthwild to say i read some of his books...bad mistake. how come i can't put negative stars?

Sadly, I know exactly how he (at least his poet persona) feels.
