A long spare poem a few years in the writing, typed on an Olympia de Luxe cursive typewriter. The silver cover stock paper is the same as that used as a substrate in the installation River.

First edition: thirty chapbooks made by the author for a reading in Seattle, WA. The paper is onionskin and the text appears on the rectos only. 

Second edition: five hundred chapbooks published by Ugly Duckling Presse, fifty of which were signed and numbered. 

All editions are sold out.
