two poems by la monte young


La Monte Young – 98 IV 29 Evening NYC (1998)

I came across these again recently, and thought they’d be nice to pass along – particularly given that it’s rare to encounter the La Monte Young’s poetry. Both were published accompanying  Die Schachtel‘s issue of Catherine Christer Hennix’s The Electric Harpsichord in 2010 – sadly out of print, but more than worth tracking down if you can. I’ll let Young’s words speak for themselves. Enjoy.

-Bradford Bailey
