“Linda in College,” by Charles Luden

October 27, 2010

Today’s poem won’t be tempted by a single man.

“Linda in College” is in Charles Luden’s book, West of Venus: punk love poems plus others. It’s out of print, but you’ll often find something of Mr. Luden’s on the shelves of the Sioux Falls Zandbroz Variety.  Look closely–it’s probably a very small pamphlet tucked between Anne Morrow Lindbergh and Osip Mandelstam.

Charles might happen to be there, too.  Buy him a cup of coffee and ask him to take you to whatever open mic is on that night.

    Is this a punk-love poem or a punk love-poem or are these two the same?
    No matter.
    I think I’ve met just such a Linda!
