Introduction toThe Upland Peace Camp Series from 9/88 more than so long ago

So these Poems were written while I was a support person for Delco Pledge of Resistance and in early sobriety. 

This is the intro I wrote then; 

The last time I was here I was working with The Delco Pledge of Resistance, in setting up a Peace Camp at The Armory.  I was with my ex-girlfriend. She wasn’t my ex-girlfriend then. Everything takes time. 

This is the revised intro:

 When I wrote these Poems then, they were to be read aloud as opposed to being on the page.  I typed them on an electric typewriter and kept the copies.  Now I am putting them on the net and destroying the copies since there’s no reason to keep anything that’s on the net. 

I’m still with the woman previously referred to as my ex.  Ex never really happened.  We’ve lived together in various states of happiness since then. 

These Poems are written in the style of Robert Small with all of his various stylistic tics.  I have read the Poems and I approve this Series.
