Poems from the Open Road
(Dolphins & Orchids Publishing, 2001)
These “poems from the open road” are the Pilgrim’s Progress of a road devotee, written throughout my 100,000-mile hitchhiking odyssey from 1974 to 1990, when I met my next teacher (and married her). I introduce the poems with a short essay on contemporary foot-travel in the U.S.A., and illustrate them with “found art” from the highwayside— random objects flattened and transformed by passing traffic, crayon rubbings of scraps of tiretread.
