"An interior/personal piece"

This is from an unsewn sheet of Michael McClure's Dark Brown, published by Auerhahn in 1961. McClure submitted the poems to Olympia Press for consideration but Dave Haselwood got there first. "A Long Poem of Spiritual Revolution and Sexuality" of which Ginsberg wrote in Big Table, "I don't know anyone else who has gone so far & I think the McClure poem is a landmark . . . It is the moment of breakthru for him and anyone after him." Kerouac writes gushingly of "Pat McLear" in Big Sur and has similar praise for Dark Brown.
