Printed by Buffalo Press for the author, San Francisco. 1963, 160p., text reproduced from typewritten manuscript, softbound in 8.5x5.5 inch mint-green wraps decorated with a photo of a middle-aged woman in the nude on all fours. Poems (doggerel, actually) devoted to a woman 15 years the poet's junior and married to another man; the content rather explicit for the time (much description of cunnilingus), though the author states that he had to "tone them down" because of "postal laws." Cover has a little handling soil, a tiny stain on the back, terminal leaf is toned from something laid in but long-gone, a good copy. The poet "lived in Honolulu through the war torn years and wrote daily for the papers and magazines there;" the publisher was located in the Mission District of San Francisco.
