Born Again

Santa Barbara, CA: Am Here Books, 1985. Limited First Edition. Stapled Sheets. "in a past life/ i was a field of wheat/ which was mowed & ground/ into a bag of grain/ which a cow ate,/ who, which later, i ate." (first stanza) A long, inspired, exemplary poem by Ray Bremser (1934-1998), the legendary Literary (& literal) Outlaw-Poet of the Beat Generation & Beyond. Among his most well-known works, this was first recited by Bremser at the Naropa Institute in Boulder, CO during 1982, & first appeared among other contributions in the journal New Blood the next year. This is the first separate edition, limited to 250 (un-numbered) copies & published by Richard Aaron's venerable Am Here Books in 1985. Stapled sheets. A scarce & important Bremser collectible. In very fine condition with just a bit of rubbing & a few short, faint creases to front, back cover sheets; lightest wear & a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of same & all interior page leaves. Very Fine. [Item #3661]
