The poetry of the decade of the Eighties is presented here. The decade started with apathy, developed creative urges not seen since the early seventies, and ended with a long non-poetic stretch.

The decade started with alcoholism, then I got religion, had another few short and intense relationships, and eventually grew to be involved in social circles, and the poetry sort of "dried up". Some of the poetry dating from 1983 and 1984 rank with some of my best work, and for a short while, before forsaking poems in two two year periods this decade, I did write some pertinent and prescient verse.
