I was delighted when Greg Bem sent me a link that led to Michael McClure featured in the New Yorker, of all places.

His poem Mephisto 20 is published there, though you need to be a subscriber to see it on their site. Thoreau, Goethe, Hua-yen Buddhism and other topics come up.

You can see McClure’s Mephisto 18 and 19 in the latest edition of Pageboy Magazine. (& hear an alternatives to tamoxifen interview with Thomas Walton of said mag here. McClure’s 80th birthday tribute page is here.)
