Pasadena, CA: Red Hen Press, 2020. First Edition. Softcover. "There are perfectly good explanations/ for the simultaneous risks we juggle./ There are shipyards of baubles/ and harbors that have dried up/ and martinis made up by Episcopalians/ that burnish them for the plagiarisms/ of the Holy Spirit. It's only right/ that the room is furnished/ with importance and low light./ Gotta flaunt the groove, with flourishes/ and gentle force, I guess./ Like a Buddha, Paul Motian says." ("Like A Buddha, Paul Motian Says...," last stanza, pg. 92) The most recent (as of this writing) volume of poems by Keith Flynn, the acclaimed, prize-winning poet & former lyricist- lead singer for the rock band The Crystal Zoo. A generous collection of Flynn's humorous, incendiary, topical poems divided into three sections: "Etymologies," "Dichotomies" & "Necrologies." Trade-format softcover original, first edition as stated on copyright page. Loosely included is a two-page publisher's press release, the first page of which quotes the great American musical biographer Quincy Troupe: "Keith Flynn is a brilliant, bodacious poet at the top of his sonic, linguistic game in this new volume of poetry...with poems that dance off the page in arpeggios of flight, gripping the reader's imagination and taking American poetry in a new, exhilarating direction." Two loose sheets folded width-wise with printing on rectos only. A musically attuned, exciting future rarity by the gifted Keith Flynn, with enriching ephemera. Book in very fine condition with only a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of front, back covers & spine; very small area at lower right edge-corner of front cover with peeling laminate. Interior very fine with only very-small-to-tiny faint bump-creases at upper corners of some page leaves. Press release ephemera folded as noted above, otherwise substantially mint. Very Fine.
