"A poet departs, too soon, and there is a void that will not be filled. From somewhere deep and old the tears well up in the dark night.

When I met Jim in 1967 he was seventeen. He had been leading a triple life: high school All-American basketball star, heroin addict/ street hustler, poet."

The above is from Tom Clark's wee memoir of Jim Carroll, as submitted by the author, newly published from Longhouse for the Spring Equinox 2010. With photographs by Bill Berkson, Mary K. Greer, and Beatrice Murch.

In glossy photographic wraps, hand sewn in four colors. Ready to be slipped into your back pocket, or anyone's.
