Old Friends at a Party by Les Bohem

Old Friends at a Party by Les Bohem

A book of short poems about things Les saw, or wished he had seen, or is very sorry indeed that he saw. Les Bohem was part of the great Los Angeles music scare of the early 1980s.

The passengers on this bus appear wearing hijabs, Nigerian geles, and little white bonnets. The trip includes musical boys with hair braided into elaborate crowns, men in broad-brimmed hats, and tall, slender Somalians....
