About the Book
I wrote "Crowd Control" during my senior year at P.S.U. Most was written in my dorm room at P.S.U., but also at Greg and Elenor's apartment. "Crowd Control" is the third book of a four book set of books. Sad to say I was in an eastern religion phase back then. The religion tends to threaten to swamp the poems and pages and does not really resolve itself until Book Four, "The Salvation Shuffle". Now, in 2011, I am about through with these works finally. Originally the poetry was not punctuated, that only added later on. I stopped writing like this about 30 years ago, now doing only prose.
