The Pill Versus the Springhill Mine Disaster is Richard Brautigan's seventh poetry publication. A limited, signed, hard cover edition of fifty copies was issued simultaneously with the soft cover version of the first edition.
The collection of ninety-eight poems includes thirty-eight that were previously uncollected. The rest were gathered from five of Brautigan's previous poetry publications. In some cases, all of the poems from an earlier book were included in this volume.
When you take your pill
it's like a mine disaster.
I think of all the people
lost inside of you.
