The Beats Go On

When Ginsberg walked the supermarket

aisles with Whitman, and Ferlinghetti

printed Howl despite or because of Allen’s

inability to use Sunday School speak,

Poets heaved enlightened sighs

and pressed their pen to paper

with a universal squeal of freedom

that sounded something like

a profane yawp.
