Culture & Criticism From the Far Distant Realms
I’m a poet by trade, and I confront the subjects I examine from the alters of that perspective. In turn, I’m choosing to publish my first reaction to More Blood, More Tracks: a poem which illuminates the birth of the review. I think it’s appropriate to include this piece here, since this 14th installment of the Bootleg Series memorializes the birth of a record as we see all the shapes these landmark songs took in Bob Dylan’s head before they ever found their final form.
(On Bob Dylan’s Blood On the Tracks)
Into the caskets
In your head
Through the vast
The sky roars
Into next iteration
