Eidolon Editions, San Francisco

"TimeBomb was written on the night of September 12-13, 2005 between 2:00 and 3:30 a.m.  When the[se] poems began, I wrote them down as best I could--as if I was taking dictation.  Many of them came in as tiny dream snapshots in that state between sleep and waking.  The notebook pages on which I 'caught' them are marked by the wandering lines my pen made as I tilted forward and sideways, half falling back into slumber between one piece and the next.  In this homemade first edition I have taken the liberty of presenting the entire work as I received it without changing, rearranging or cutting anything."  In 2009, Di Prima was named the Poet Laureate of San Francisco.
