great poets now: eddie woods

Eddie Woods was a personal friend of Tennessee Williams, Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs. Known in poetry circles as the 'Gangster Poet', his greatest fans are other poets - and anybody who reads or hears his poetry.

Above: 'Tsunami of Love' a poetry book which tells the story of the rise and fall of an incredible love affair (witnessed by schmoo!), and (below) 'Dangerous Precipice' a spoken word CD, both by Eddie Woods, are examples of the power of the word at it's best; the poetic splitting of the atom.

Above: 'Dangerous Precipice' CD by Eddie Woods. Highly recommended. Ordering details:
