Jim Harrison. Plain Song. 1965. 69 pp,

This is a very ordinary book from the 1960s, published by Norton. I read it in the public library today to take a break from reading student papers. It might have seen good for its time, kind of in that realist branch the deep image. I didn't care for the use of phrases like "glisten with sweat" and "plummet to the earth." I would never use phrases like that except ironically. Still, not a bad book by any means.
