Single issue of the little magazine, which ran to 11 issues. A remarkable issue which includes a poem by the great Agnes Martin, as well as Leroi Jones and his poem ""Preface to a Twenty-Volume Suicide Note," one of his earlier journal publications, as recounted in his autobiography: "[T]he publication was encouraging, even though who the hell read 'The Naked Ear' which was only half the size of a regular paperback but you could see it in some of the bookstores." Other contributors include Larry Eigner, Genevieve Stevens, Sandy McKinney, Muriel Loran, Elizabeth Bartlett, Byron Chew, Norman MacLeod, William Newberry, A. Karl Austin, Lorner Morglas, Carole Crews, William j. Margolis, and Diane MacQuarrie.
