In 1975 I collected over a hundred wordstreams and titled them Until I Awake In the Country. In these prose poems I explore urban and suburban society that seems to be detached from the natural rhythms of life.  I did not publish this collection, but in 1976 a few of these poems were published in a small booklet with two other poets when I was living in Toronto, Canada.  This pamphlet was titled, Crash Landing At the Pilot, and referred in part to the Pilot Tavern, where I worked as a bartender, and where my two poet friends frequented often.
