had he lived

James Dean wd be celebrating his 85th birthday today.

every year on his birthday I remember when I threw a party for his 50th. the invitation featured my poem "Autobiographical Fragment" with a portrait of the actor by Jim Provenzano.  I still have some copies hanging around.

however I also printed -- on special paper -- only 20 copies of just the poem & drawing. Jim & I signd the numberd copies.  it's item A26 in my bibliography. & even tho it isn't the fiction he became famous for I suspect it's the first item in Jim's biblio.
