New from Counter Culture Chronicles:
Sailing hither and thither on Lake Life is the first joint edition of Counter Culture Chronicles and Casioli Press. The plain but elegant chapbook contains five poems by Hans Plomp and a photograph of the poet by Sylvia Leidelmeijer. The poems together form a good crosssection of Plomp’s poetic output. There is The Beast is loose, a primal rhyme verse for dark and stormy nights, and the dark and apocalyptic A Prophesy, dedicated to William Blake, and the equally dark and anti-nuclear Welcome Lord Pluto, dedicated to Allen Ginsberg. Or Courting the Water Hag, a loving tribute to Plomp’s friend and fellow-traveller Ira Cohen, or the final poem 64 Yoginis, which documents and elaborates one of Plomp’s experiences in India. The risographed and saddle-stitched chapbook was published in a limited edition of 50 copies, each signed by Hans Plomp and each with a photo print by Sylvia Leidelmeijer.
