D.A. Levy Reading in Cleveland: BERET: a concrete poem for the war monuments

BERET: a concrete poem for the war monuments (1967)
by D.A. Levy

The Cleveland Memory Project makes this 58 second video available. It's a bit difficult to hear clearly so I include the text (much longer than the recording). Here is the text of the poem which is available on the Cleveland site. The recording is only of the very first part . 

"This clip was edited and digitized from a newly discovered 16mm film segment originally shot by Dennis Goulden of Cleveland's WKYC-TV's vintage television series Montage as he and his crew captured scenes from the counterculture/hippie movement of the late1960s." 

D.A. levy Reading: May 14, 1967


D. A. Levy
Many thanks to the enterprising and dedicated Cleveland Memory Project for making Mr. Levy's work available. The diversity of both his poetry and his remarkable hand done publications was a great delight to me during the years I was exchanging publications with him and sending my publications to Jim Lowell's historic Asphodel Book Shop in Cleveland.
