In the introduction to this early publication by Carol Bergé, publisher Paul Blackburn writes, “Carol Berge knows very well that I love her work, and would see it more widely spread: one of the most sensitive and perceptive poets writing today, and one with too little recognition for her sense of the craft.” Bergé’s sense of craft and attention to interpersonal relationships are evident throughout the compressed, urgent poems in this collection. Published in an edition of 500 copies, this chapbook was issued as the Winter 1968-69 edition of Desert Review out of Santa Fe.
