This is from 1972, vol. 1, no. 1 of Bachy, a perfect bound mag/book put out by Papa Bach bookstore in Los Angeles. Bachy was short lived, and this poem has not been published anywhere else.

Thanks, mjp! - It's always a treat to read a rare uncollected Buk poem!

I remember Papa Bach well. Just down and across the street from the Nuart Theater. A great little bookshop that specialized in left-wing poetics and politics. It was one of the first bookstores in this area to go down due to the mega-bookstore-chains taking over.
funny, I've been talking to Bill Mohr -Bachy editor- these days. He also put out a LA anthology book titled POETRY LOVES POETRY featuring eight Buk poems.
