This publication is the result of a four person poetry reading at the Student Union at CSU-Long Beach. All four poets are West Coast regulars and the reading was politically motivated to promote the vote. Topics include South Africa, the Bush War, the American Dream, and death by racism, among others. "I saw an African-American/ blast an African-American/ Dead in a doorway.../ My sixth grade classmate died/ ...shot by her friend// My cousin blew his fingers off/ ...I say, Eat your own bullets,/ Mr. Man." Intelligent, poignant, deliberate protest, as often delivered in a campus setting.--R.R. Lee Etzwiler
