really liked it

I love the books in this collection, especially 'Because it is'. A collection that brings together Patchen's poetry/artwork collages is long overdue, and while this one occasionally gives off a foul odor similar to that emitted by so many nonsensical poems of the 60s, it's worth remembering that Patchen wrote most of these poems in the 40s when 90% of the U.S. population thought that an A bomb dropped on a densely populated city was something to celebrate. His message was deeply necessary, and these poems are beautiful.
