Analysis, meaning and summary of Richard Brautigan's poem Xerox Candy Bar


  1. Xerox Candy Bar was the first TRUE Poem, that I read that wasn’t a “Classic or a Continual Rhyme. It blew me away back in the mid 70s…Brautigan was someone “no one’ had ever heard (except for a few of his inner circle and Poet Majors).. In a time; when everyone was ‘trying to be someone ‘else’ Brautigan turns the Mirror upon ourselves .

    Great Poem…
