That about sums it up.

I’m kidding, of course.

This broadside was created by Black Sparrow Press in 1999 to promote a poetry contest for aspiring writers. I only wish I could have read some of the entries,

“I’ll drink until I’m dead because women are horrible and nobody knows what a great writer I am...”

The contest was sponsored by Copperfield's Bookstore, the Independent newspaper of Soonoma County and Black Sparrow Press.

The broadside measures approximately 12.5’ x 9.25” and is printed in two colors.

It features a fun Charles Bukowski drawing of a bar scene and the poem, Wide and Moving. The poem would later appear in What Matters Most Is How Well You Walk Through the Fire (2002).

This is a really nice copy. It does have a single fold, but it is very light and would not be noticeable to the eye if framed. In Fine condition with corners sharp.
