really liked it
bookshelves: poetry

I'm hardly an expert on poetry but this seems like a very remarkable bk for when it was originally published in 1929. It's all hand-written & drawn & it has a vitality to it that has nothing(?) to do w/ so-called 'artistic merit' & everything to do w/ ATTITUDE & INTENSITY. One page reads:

"Missionaries

I have thought
a lot
about missionaries

being boiled in
black pots
by black men
and I have always
come to this conclusion
WHY NOT?"

This is like the best of beat poetry before beat poetry existed.
