Questo libro contiene diciotto componimenti. Indice:Nota dell’autore. Quand’ero giovane e premio dell’estate;Ora che è notte, che los angeles parola;Stai, ove non t’ode los angeles mia mente;Sta seduto in un campo, come un cardo;Natura morta;Erano le cinque e dieci;Space go back and forth (Challenger);Ha due occhi il bue;Ha una bocca, brutta quanto si vuole;E tu pretendi che io ti dia credito;Questa;Ed io mi immagino che veniate al party;Qualcuno mi cube che verrete a trovarmi;Poi, riposte le carte nel cassetto;I pastori verranno, senza gregge;Poi io prenderò le vostre mani;Pinocchio in Venice di Coover;Dopo los angeles passeggiata notturna.
