Poetry. THE FUNERAL JOURNAL by Ed Friedman, director of the St. Mark's Poetry Project, is drawn from Space Stations, "a journal I've been keeping since 1979." "Cold and dark. Drifting through space. Everything is an interruption of an interruption and a continuation. Call it 'progress' if you want to take the optimistic view; in retrospect it's history. If you're lucky, you get to know yourself in history, like running up on your toes or swimming with your shoulders above the water line." Saddlestapled.
