Poetry. This volume contains parts 5 & 6 William James Austin's underground classic, UNDERWORLD. As the opening poem describes, Austin puts forth "a poetry which copylates beneath the pavement. so how the reader reads is a kind of surface experience, initially--like taking a walk around the city and feeling the underground connections--electric shocks to the body--subways who rattle their sunken cages--/the storm underfoot".
William James Austin lives in New York City and remains addicted to its dystopian landscape. To date he has authored five collections of poetry, essays, and "photopo." Austin has worked as a musician and song writer in the worlds of jazz and rock music and teaches at the State University of New York.Author City: New York, NY USA
