Regardless, Frederick Seidel does have a very cool website, where you can listen to all of the poems from Ooga Booga. I thought I'd put a couple of my favorites up here on the blog, but you should definitely check out the site, too. Here's 'Frederick Seidel' (where the title of this post comes from):
