A Reading of From A Further Room...

More Poetry of youth, 1958-1959, age 17-18.

Some of these poems are from a Poetry reading I did in 1959. Most of the verses here were published over the decades after I graduated high school.

These were written in Bucktown, Pa.

My dedication was to the Ladies of My Youth.

If you watch the video, I suggest you scroll down to the bottom of my blog and turn off the music player.
