From Steven Fama's blog the glade of theoric ornithic hermetica (don't blame me for the daft name!):

... despite, or maybe because of it ambiguous character given its prose, and somewhat occult status, Cities – a most fantastic work by Robert Kelly – ought to be celebrated as poetry, and more widely read. And thus the mission here today, in the glade: to show and tell a bit about Cities and its prose poetry, and perhaps encourage some to go out a find it (more...)

Steven suggests that Robert's Cities is hard to find -- the limited edition is, but the piece was reprinted in A Transparent Tree which should be a little easier to get your hands on.

  1. Thanks much, Mark, for the helpful info re Cities being available in an omnibus collection.

    I've put an update at the bottom of my post, including a link to your post, and in the main part of the post where I first discuss the availability of the work, I've added a bracketed statement directing folks down to the update.

    Daftily yours,

    Steven Fama
