Fragile Do Not Touch

Although the cover states this Number 3 in the Le Metro Series,  In the Shower and Out of it by Dan Saxon is, in fact, Number 4 and from what I can gather the last in the series.  Saxon printed it in 1966 a full years after the magazine ended and two years after Ten Thousand Reflections by Spencer Holst.  I cannot lie.  I have not read this chapbook.  When I opened it the first time, I was greeted with a loud crack as the glue on the binding gave way.  It looks like Saxon may have used rubber cement or a like adhesive to perfect bind this together.  It was definitely not made to last and it was the furthest thing from Saxon's mind that dorks like me would, decades later, get all excited about this stuff.
