    Midatlantic Vol. 3, No. 11 (1979)

    Here is It's Easy and Trouble In The Ghetto from Midatlantic Vol. 3, No. 11 (1979). Both sound a little familiar to me, but the titles are not listed in the database. The third poem is Funny Man, which was collected in “the night torn mad with footsteps,” but I’m including it here because it...
