Mini-poems from the late Beat godfather’s notebooks.

Sample Verse
”Man, the terrible laugh/of those who think/themselves special/ — elite — it/has a gory/hungry sound…”

Pop Culture Reference
”I waste time on boxscores, on/Philley’s last hit/or Greengrass’s homer — or on/TV stupidities — /how mediocre everything’s/got since 10 years!”

Bottom Line
Uneven, sure, but vivid descriptions of farmers and truck drivers connect you to life on the road.
