Columbus, OH: Buchenroth Publishing Company, 1998. First Edition. Stapled Wrappers. Written on the occasion of the Ray Bremser Memorial held in Cherry Valley, NY at Allen Ginsberg's farm in 1998, poet-publisher (and Beat student/devotee) Michael Buchenroth brings us the elegiac and powerful "Four Beats Diverged in Ginsberg's Woods." Buchenroth writes: "Indeed, ole Al convinced us / to turn left there just past / where that ole yellow car sat / there at the first T in that dirt path / after leaving Ginsberg's Committee. / Shortly, Joe's big Buick comenced (sic) to lurch-- / four burnt out beatnik hippies / in a beat blue Buick lurch'n down this eternal short cut, / that I suppose Charlie [Plymell] might have had in mind / when he wrote the line / about the "totem slope of time" / in Baltimore there at Poe's Grave..." Buchenroth continues, illustrating the moving memorial service as these hobbled-though-heroic individuals marched one of their own to his resting place. Chapbook in very fine condition, virtually as new, with only slightest rusting to staples at center of book. Very Fine. [Item #3972]
