poem by Todd Moore

  • o yeah! that’s the way to do it! dynamite poem by todd! dynamite visuals by klaus! the combination is as explosive as gunfire!

  • That’s a great picture of Bob, ‘the Black American Rimbaud’, as he looked in the 1980s when he was living around San Francisco. Anyone who doesn’t know his book Solitudes Crowded with Loneliness should– it is an underrated English language classic.

    In this book, the poems and spirit of Jack Micheline are present. It’s a great thing that Jack be recognized, as well, as one of the greatest outlaw poets America yet produced. You can also find poems by David Lerner, who has found a substantial international audience, and represents a high point of a particular era in American poetry.

    Congrats to S.A. Griffin and the editors for their work on this book.

  • I’m so glad somebody turned me on to this book a number of years ago. Thanks to S.A. Griffin and others for putting these poems out there.
