still be alive.
a Colorado University student by the name of Chris Caruso wrote this. as someone 8 months OLDER than Richards I find the poem hilarious.
there are many other provocative poems in The Hay(na)ku Anthology, Vol. II. editd by Jean Vengua & Mark Young it's just been publishd by Meritage Press in the US of A & xPress(ed) in Finland. because a poem of mine enjoys space with work by many poets I admire I rec'd a copy in the mail yesterday from Eileen Tabios inventor of the 3-line form. it'll take me some time to work my way thru this collection. but that will be as pleasant an activity as someone older than a Rolling Stone can imagine.
Eileen informs me that her press is offering a relase special offer. a copy of the book can be had for only $12 if orderd before 31 july 08. since you can't afford gas for that summer trip why not send a check to Meritage Press instead. then you'll not only have something to read as you pretend the backyard is a beach but you'll have a keeper for many summers to come.
