This recording was made by a man in New Jersey. He made it for his family, to tell them not to interfere with his plans to go on a diet that he hoped would cure him of AIDS. Logan Jaffe found this tape at a yard sale in Gainesville Florida.
I went to this awesome house in Minneapolis for a poetry reading. The poets read in the back yard and we drank home brew that someone brought in a big cooler. There was a Barbie doll whose head had been replaced with an Ewok’s. One of the poets, John Colburn read these poems. You can read more of John’s work here.
Special thanks to Paula Cisweski and Jack Walsh for inviting us into their sweet back yard.
