    OPENED: Golden Rose Poem 2.

    Edition: First printing, a limited edition chapbook.

    Sheffield, UK: Headland Poetry, 1973. SIGNED first edition - A single poem printed on a single sheet folded and stapled in stiff yellow wrappers. #30 of 150 individually numbered copies. This copy has a long SIGNED inscription inside the front cover - long enough to be considered a letter - in German (although born in the US, Jaffin has lived for many years in Germany). One comment on his poetry, which I think is accurate for this poem also, is that his poems "are restrained, dignified, pictorial, and superficially simple, but they turn frequently on the ambiguities inherent in language.".
