Poetry. "Dick Bakken's poetry is colored by our geographic patchwork that he constantly travels. The cadences of billboard flash, pop radio love beat, Native American chant, Protestant sermonizing, TV pitches, and the intelligible babble of children all spin like pinwheels in the homemade rhetoric of Bakken's work. In performance, without manuscript or microphone, in his motley of striped pants, fringed jacket, white pointed shoes, and scarlet pearl-buttoned shirt, his image as the half-cracked half- inspired troubadour from the West is complete."?San Francisco Poetry Flash
