This collection of unconventional Zen poetry by Ken Noyle reflects the free-spirit of Zen. Here is poetry as mod as flower children and hippies; a Warhol happening or sitar music. Ken Noyle is a "personal" poet who immediately demands his reader to be with him or agin him as he ruminates on many things he thinks are important. Those things include sex and marriage and God and nature and war and the position of the individual in relation to each. Ponderous? No. Rather, outrageous, iconoclastic, irreverent in a "let's look- at-this-together-and-see-what-we make-of-it vein." Noyle's amazing range between delicate sensitivity and outright earthiness reflects his study of Zen from which he has carried off a disarming sense of reality. To read and enjoy Ken Noyle is to learn a little more about one's self. What more can a poet hope for?
