Side-stapled wrappers. Cover by Joe Brainard. This is from an edition of 300 copies, 10 of which are lettered A–J, signed by the poet and artist. Schiff writes: "All the poems in Secret Clouds were written during the 1967 to 1969 period. I had come to live at 519 E. 5th Street, between Avenues A & B. The title poem was written on acid on the rooftop of that building where I often went to trip, meditate and experience visions, especially while gazing into the clouds—always abundant on those occasions." (The Angel Hair Anthology, p. 598) Staples show evidence of rust, back cover of blue paper shows light fading to extremities. Near fine, clean, sharp.
