"Happiness O Happiness, / All the world is so fucking / stuck with misery / We are so apologetic to history / say so it was and so shall ever be..." First edition of British Columbia-based American poet, artist, and "romantic postmodernist bardic figure" Kurt Slauson’s debut book. A potpourri of paintings, drawings, and poetry (think of the illuminations of Blake and Patchen), Slauson’s debut collection is not only a demonstration of polymathic talent, but an embodiment of the implicit synesthetic relationship among seemingly distinct modes of expression. Foreword by fellow American poet Ed Skoog. Fine. Item #2384
