Drug poems / Michael Dransfield. (Melbourne : Sun Books, 1972) Sun poetry series.

Perhaps the most popular poet among the counter-culture in Australia in the early 1970s was Michael Dransfield. He epitomised the stoned cool poet, and wrote about his experiences using realistic imagery. Unfortunately, he died of an overdose in 1973. Max Harris continued to publish the manuscript poems he left at his death, but Drug Poems was his most successful book.
