I know a Man

As I sd to my Creeley
friend, because I am
always talking, --John, I

sd, which was not his
name, the darkness sur-
rounds us, what

can we do against
it, or elese, shall we &
why not, buy a goddamn big car,

drive, he sd, for
christ's sake, look
out where yr going.


Robert Creeley, a "Black Mountain" poet whose influence "it may be impossible to overstate," died this morning of pnemonia at the age of 78.

May he rest in peace.
