I guess this little chapbook is the nearest I have to “juvenilia.” All the poems are love poems, poems of longing, written in my heart-hungry twenties. I love their innocence and passion, though I don’t think I’d want to return to their sometimes solipsistic angst.
(And I’d be delighted if someone could find me another copy. I have only one.)
Best known for his short-short stories about “the boys,” Jim Heynen has published widely as a writer of poems, novels, nonfiction, and short fiction.
