Publisher Comments:

Poetry. A PLASTIC BAG OF RED CELLS is a prose poem in the voice, or scream, of the great unwashed of the late 1960s bleeding slowly into the dregs of the early 70s: the Vietnam vets to the middle-class rejects, the ordinary. It is not about the movers and shakers, those now seen being interviewed on late night TV, or the celebrities of the era now opening concerts for Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. This is the story of the fodder--Cassidy not Kerouac--those who arrived on the scene too late to be leaders and still too young to drop out of anything. This poem starts after the leaders of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and the Weathermen had peevishly taken all their revolutionary toys and gone home, after the drop-outs had all nicely dropped back in. This poem is for those left over: the turned on, tuned in, and dropped in the gutter. This is a story of that which was left.
