Michael Cohen has graciously put together a pdf* of the following poems for our May 1 discussion. More details, anon, about that meeting. In the meantime, here’s your reading! I’ll post additional poems as members of the group desire.
*you may want to download and print this version of the pdf, particularly if your printer is prone to jamming. I cropped the pages so that most of the black outline of the photocopier bed is gone.
