The Return

ISBN: 0-914378-76-7

(Countryman Press, 1979: poetry)

A long narrative poem that nostalgically recalls the 'sixties, tracing the adventures of two reporters, male and female, who are caught up in the chaos following the fall of Saigon, and captured by Cambodian drug lords; they escape into China, spend time in a communist commune, are released into Burma where they experience enlightenment in a Buddhist monastery, and finally return to America. The poem, composed in a loose five-stress line, seeks a way for America to recover from the cultural wounds suffered in the period, and looks toward the end of modernism.
