ROSENBLATT, Joe. The Sleeping Lady. (Toronto) : Exile Editions, (1979). First Printing. Pp. (96). Unpaginated. Printed on one side only. 8vo, illustrated cream card covers with black lettering to front cover and spine. A collection of forty-four poems by the prolific Canadian author, born Joseph Rosenblatt, December 26, 1933, in Toronto. "The snake's undulations dazzle lunatic man as he fumbles at love's door. The worm in his eye is woman shedding her several skins. The worm on his thigh is how love begins. Man, slinking through the cankered garden, fleeing God's despair and the pestilential crowd of sobriety, craves her flesh, her diamond-pointed see-thru skin in spirals. He sings his epithalamion -- he is hers in dreams and bondage, following the umbilical cord back to the oval opening, lost among apples and Evangels, submerged in felicity and labial fire, risking hitmen in rubber suits and the nitro-bottled future -- all for a glimpse of his olivaceous lover, sweet meats and incandescence, and a spilt tear. Love poems in the bloomed night, unzippered eels in the dust." - from the rear cover. Very good. Due to its small size, shipping costs should be a bit cheaper than quoted. 15.00
