Those of us w/ our own libraries tend to particularly prize these small press, small edition, poetry chapbks. I can easily imagine my friend, the poet Anselm Hollo, reciting a fascinating litany of poets & creative people whose work can primarily be found in such obscure publications.

Naropa University has the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics founded by Anne Waldman, still associated w/ it 36 yrs later, & Allen Ginsberg. Many a major poet has passed thru its campus on tight budgets to give readings. This particular series of chapbks has a templated cover done on letterpress in the Harry Smith Print Shop. The idea is for each author to circle the Roman numeral that their place in the series represents, to sign it & date it.

Snell's poem is dated a few mnths before his reading. It's so short it wd be easy for me to quote it in its entirety here but I'll reproduce one stanza instead:

"A graft-

for light shards

/ a codicil."
