Inauguration Raga


A.P.D. (a presidential disaster) announces the publication of Inauguration Raga, by Dan Wilcox, a 16-page chapbook of a poem improvised on January 20, 2017.  The poem was written from 10:00AM to 4:30PM while watching the televised broadcasts of the inauguration of Donald Trump as President of the United States, in a cheap notebook with a free motel ball-point pen.  It was improvised much like jazz or the Indian music form raga, from the visual & aural images broadcast on CNN & on Democracy Now! as well as flash-backs to the 1973 inauguration of Richard Nixon.

Inauguration Raga is #12 in the Bob Kaufman series of inexpensive poetry chapbooks published by A.P.D. (another political debate).

Copies are available at poetry readings whenever you see Dan Wilcox for $3.00, or by mail for $4.00, checks payable to “A.P.D.” from
