Games of Chance

Back in the late 90s, I had the pleasure of meeting Thom Gunn through a friend and am happy to share this never before seen photo I took of the late poet which was taken at a bar in San Francisco called A Hole In The Wall. All I can remember of the meeting was a naked man walking around the bar singing a song that was not playing through the speakers.

Rounding out this wonderful collection of poetry books are a few queer zines including my own GORDO, “The Most Sought After All-Male Publication” which was released as a double-sided poster.
