Poetry. A reprint of this 1982 book of prose poetry by the nearly legendary avant-garde stalwart Clark Coolidge still exudes freshness. "A long-time master of the jazzy long work, Clark Coolidge has this time turned the long poem in prose into a nonfiction novel or tomb full of buried things taken with you of the new existence of old logic and present looking, all sung by a free man wortking alone and trapped as one is in cave with finite supply of oxygen, food, breath & luck."—Bernadette Mayer
