Poetry. THE RHYME OF THE AG-ED MARINESS gathers all the poems written by Lynn Lonidier (1937-1993) between her last book and her death. Lynn Lonidier was a streetwise, visionary poet whose idiom was a jazzy American English with San Francisco Mission-district Spanish thrown into the mix! Unequivocally lesbian and femminist, consistently dedicated to the underprivileged, her work brims with anger and irony, energy and humor, and yet is suffused with loving tenderness throughout. From the beginning to the end, Lynn Lonidier was an original. Her poems are startingly open-hearted and charged with the ectasy of a woman-centered vision of love and truth. -- Janine Canan, author of Changing Woman.
