lipstickJohn Wieners – Cocaine (0’58”). Recorded on reel-to-reel tape by Robert Creeley in Berkeley sometime after June 1965 and archived on PennSound (see “Part 2” of the “Reading of Various Works at Berkeley,” which begins with poems “from the original manuscript of The Hotel Wentley Poems“). • Earlier this summer, I featured Jeremy Prynne’s reading of this poem, which I include for comparison below. • Update: the audio file has now been segmented and labeled, here.
