Philip Whalen's previously unpublished story INVISIBLE IDYLLS, A Romantic Extravagance, for John Seaver. Written in 1962-1968. Joanne Kyger says: "Coming up for air, one finds the invisible idols being chaotically served in the hubble bubble of Chinese take-out. And totally enjoying what they are doing. And thinking and imagining what they please. Probably in Sanskrit. After performing the Toltec Pas de deux.... At this point one should read the whole thing over again. Just to be sure it all really happened."
