Poems by Scott Wannberg, Edited by S.A. Griffin

Scott Wannberg was a rare, generous, wise, hilarious, pure, beat, psychedelic, raw, tender, curious, sweetly subversive and truly honest man. His poems are exactly the same. Full of be-bop lyrical intensity, existential blues song wisdom, country song heartache and jagged fragments from never made John Ford movies, Scott’s glorious, wild, unpredictable visions remain a constant source of truth, laughter and inspiration for me. —Dave Alvin
