Angel Hair Books, 1972. Item #820
Side-stapled wrappers. Cover and inside drawings by Cecilio Thomas, the poet's brother. This is from an edition of 300 copies with 20 numbered and signed by poet and artist. In the early/mid 60s Lorenzo Thomas was an active participant in the Umbra workshop on the Lower East Side of New York. "And while I was in Vietnam, Anne Waldman and Ellease Southerland…were holding on to my lifeline—keeping me connected to my mother and to poetry as well. Fit Music reflects the intensive study of Ezra Pound that Ted Greenwald and I had engaged in, but was written as a kind of poetic record of my Vietnam experience." (The Angel Hair Anthology, p. 604.) Very good with toning along spine; bumps to upper left and right corners.
