Lyn Lifshin & Gina Bergamino:

Mulberry Press
105 Betty Rd.
East Meadow NY, 11554

24 pp., $1.00

WHITE HORSE CAFE is not co-written but divided in two sections; the first by Lifshin and the latter half by Bergamino. As usual, Lifshin's poems come wham-wham-wham in a torrent of words and visual stimuli. This time she's talking love (or as close to it as Lyn ever gets in her poetry!). Gina, too, talks about men lost and found. The connector? Not a WHITE HORSE CAFE per se, but a definite sense of place--bolting the feelings to a specific locale.--Roger-Kyle Keith
