Pleasant Valley, NY: Kriya Press, 1967. Limited First Edition. Single Sheet. A broadside (11"x16") with the title poem by John Wieners (1934-2002), a primary & important figure in the Black Mountain School, the San Francisco Renaissance, the Beat Generation & beyond. Printed by the Kriya Press of Sri Ram Ashrama in an edition of 100 copies, this is hand-numbered copy No. 85/100. With block print illustration, boldly evocative of the poem. During this same period of the mid-late 1960s, the Kriya Press issued similar limited, illustrated broadsides with poems by such Beat luminaries as Allen Ginsberg & Jack Kerouac. An exemplary production, & a most desirable Wieners rarity. In exceptionally very fine condition with only the slightest wear at upper corners & along part of right edge; a few small spots & smudges surrounding illustration from printing process as issued.
