Who Lets Go First

By Gian Lombardo
Illustrated by Wayne Hogan

Prose poems taking their inspiration from the I Ching. The book and coin folder are contained in a box which closed with hat pins. Just as with the I Ching, one poses a question, then throws the replica ancient Chinese coins six times, which determines either a straight line or a broken line with each toss according to mix of heads and tails. The hexagram thus determined refers one to the particular poem which will “answer” the question. The poems are provakative and enigmatic, which allows a person with insight to make a wise decision.

2 Volumes, Volume I: 80 pages, 64 prose poems. Volume II: instructions on how to throw a hexagram with three reproduction Chinese antique coins. $ Includes special paper box with hatpin closures.
