WORMWOOD is something of a miracle--it's been around since the late 50s, and continues to publish some of the best (and largely ignored) poets in America. This issue has cover art by Saul Steinberg (who did illustrations for the long defunct THE EVERGREEN REVIEW); inside we find poems by Charles Bukowski, Lyn Lifshin, Gerald Locklin, David Barker and others. Every issue of WORMWOOD has a special section where a poet is featured; this issue publishes Steve Richmond's "Desenex Every Night." Bukowski, who readies himself for the crass indignation of death, writes: "If you think Berryman, Plath/ Dylan Thomas were over-idolated,/ wait until you see what they/ do with me."--Kurt Nimmo
