Scarce second issue of this short-lived poetry magazine published by Wayne Philpot's Border Press, containing the first appearance of Bukowski's poem 'I Keep Wanting To Cry About Everything But I Can't Get Started.' Additionally, he contributed the cover illustration entitled 'Sunday Afternoon in Heaven.' Philpot was quite taken with the quality of Bukowski's drawings, and in addition to using one to grace the first two covers of Border, he asked for several more with the intention of producing a limited edition book featuring his artwork. The projected title was 'Atomic Scribblings from a Maniac Age,' and while it was promoted and advertised, Philpot ultimately vanished with the drawings without a word. Quite uncommon in the trade, with OCLC locating 2 holdings for this issue (UC Santa Barbara & Kent State). Dorbin C267.
