Just like clockwork, I publish a book about every 25 years. I'm proud to say this new book includes an Afterword by BAP series editor David Lehman and an Introduction by 2010 BAP editor Amy Gerstler.
If you've been waiting 25 years, you'll want to get this book asap. Here's a link to the publisher, where your order
will be fulfilled at once.
You can also get the book on Amazon:
"To no place he is called...”
To no place he is called
And thither he is bound—
Cloudbursts, desiccated plains,
Nothing slows his Volkswagen.
Old Philadelphia disappears
In the trembling rearview mirror,
Chicago looms, then vanishes,
Houston fades, Dallas evanesces.
Those years of the yearning siren
Voice’s call—the longing intonation
Unheard or unacknowledged—
They like the towns and cities lie
Behind him now as to no place
He is called and thither he is bound.
