Kinds of Affection
Wesleyan University Press: 1967. First edtion, inscribed to Page Smith, the people's historian. Papberback. Very good.
"On the world's other side, the shadow
Darkest before dawn is darkening
Before dawn, and sleepers in their night
Waken with desperation for daylight.
We have it. It crackles down our freeways
As if to consume us. Is in our daylight
Someone awake enough to take, use,
Share its garish inequities?"
