with the note:

Robert Creeley, November 15, 1973, at the San Francisco Museum of Art, marking the 20th anniversary of The Poetry Center, San Francisco State University, on a double bill with John Wieners. Creeley, living in nearby Bolinas, CA, at the time, opens with new poems then shifts gears (“now to go back to some of the old favorites,” said with a laugh) to readThe Kind of Act of, “The Dishonest Mailman, and “The Warning.”
