LSD POETRY   (2009-12-03)
I am the author of this volume of poetry. It was written when I was 19 years old in Berkeley, California. I was under the influence of LSD when I wrote it. The title of this chapbook, "Starve the Moths", came from a sign advertising a dry-cleaning store on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley, California. The illustrations by Lief Andres, including the amazing front cover, were drawn while Andres was high on LSD. The back cover drawing was made by Richard Grimm (1951-1972). This collection of poems is dedicated to gifted poet, author, and imagemaker Dominica Kriz, the daughter of noted Czech Surrealist photographer Villem Kriz.
(A copy of a 1981 chapbook of my poetry, A LANDSCAPE OF WRISTS, is in The Library of Congress, and in the libraries of the University of California at Berkeley, the University of California at Santa Cruz, the University of California at San Diego, and California State University--East Bay. A copy of a 1970 chapbook of my poetry, CROSSFIRE: 14 ACTS, is in the Bibliotheek Universiteit Van Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Copies of The Open Cell, a literary publication that published some of my poetry in 1969, are in the libraries of the University of California at Berkeley, the University of California at Santa Barbara, and the University of California at Santa Cruz. Some of my poetry appeared in THE ANTHOLOGY OF UNDERGROUND POETRY [edited by Herman Berlandt, and published in Berkeley, California by Poets' Commune Publications in 1970].)
