POEMS I GUESS I WROTE
by Ron Padgett, 2001, 40 pp. ISBN 0-9666328-7-7
[trade edition SOLD OUT]
Still available signed by the author and artist and including a self portrait drawing by the author in an edition of 26 lettered A-Z at $25.
book cover: Poems I Guess I Wrote by Ron Padgett
Poems I Guess I Wrote by Ron Padgett is a book of eighteen poems ranging 1965-1999 that have two things in common: they're written by Ron Padgett but he's not completely sure. As the author says in an introductory note to the book, "Leafing through old notebooks and folders of my writing, I have, from time to time, found certain poems that stop me in my tracks. The evidence that I wrote these poems--my handwriting, the font of the typewriter I had at a particular time, the marginal scribbles and revisions, the stylistic gestures, and so on--is undeniable. The odd thing is that I have no memory, or at most a tiny inkling of a memory, of having written them..." Cover art and drawings by George Schneeman.
Read an excerpt...

Ron Padgett [his website: Ron Padgett]

His books include Great Balls of Fire, Toujours l'amour, Triangles in the Afternoon, and New & Selected Poems. The most recent is The Straight Line, a collection of his writings on poetry. [2001]
