Washington DC: Azul Editions, 1992. First North American Edition. Softcover. "2000 is an oracular and jubilant poem in which a removed hero, but by no means gone from the scene, weighs in the balance the cold war and fiery hatreds in order to tell us that History has not ended: it is just being born with a new, unexpected and wondrous heartthrob."
