Raleigh, NC: The Paper Plant, 1988. Second Edition. Stapled Wrappers. "No more dedications,/ no more breaking new ground:/ let's plow what we got here,/ and not make so much sound./ All bonds are permanent/ no ties are real./ Things fall into place/ with an appalling lack of zeal." ("Unnamed," first lines) A collection of poems by John Dancy-Jones, an acclaimed American poet-performer, educator & publisher. A very attractive chapbook production by Dancy-Jones' own imprint, with fold-out pages. Originally published in 1985, second edition of 1988 as stated on copyright page. These daring, energetic poems seem to dance off the page, & the reader can easily imagine them being sung out by the poet- they are indeed meant to be performed. A delightful & rewarding Dancy-Jones collectible, in very fine condition with only spotting at thin outer edges of one leaf-fold (unpaginated); otherwise virtually mint in delicate handmade stapled, attached outer wraps. Very Fine. [Item #3942]
