Mick Guffan -- Inner London Buddha
A small selection of never-before-seen poetry by the late Mick Guffan (1953-2006). Published September 2013, to celebrate the launch of the second Tooting Free Press newspaper. It is a little known fact that, towards the end of his life, Guffan became increasingly interested in Buddhism to help come to terms with his chaotic lifestyle. In addition to the title poem, this chapbook contains haiku sequences reflecting on his experiences with Heroin and the painkilling opioid Tramadol.
