Blank Like Me
by Harrison Fisher
(poetry) ISBN 0-9602424-2-2 (1980)
Harrison was one of the best DC poets of the late 70's, bar none. He wrote some lyrics for local band Tru Fax and the Insaniacs. This was his 6th book in a matter of 3 years. He wrote a couple more after this one, then moved to Albany, NY.
Lots of language play. Harrison was also connected to the Providence scene. (Tom Ahern designed the cover.) This book is divided into two parts--"Immunization & Society" and "White Zombie". The latter makes use of B movie horror titles. I haven't really seen anybody else who possessed his sardonic wit save maybe Susan Smith Nash.
