Our father... ah yes Lawrence redefined an age with his poetry. And he also made a nice segue into the Last Waltz, that seminal portrait of the band by some famous director. I'll get his name to you later after my fucking senior moment! Photo by Ram Das.

On the Road gave me wings to pursue

an upper blue

an inner screech

and a burning brew

of Lot’s hard lot

and Salem’s plot

and a new world order

that seldom knots

with our true

and ill-defined borders

in this space that we

will not

endeavor to enter

without

some snot

upon

Seattle Slew’s

equine trot

plop, plop

wait

that’snot snot.

but someting else that ensues from that hot trot

like from the gaping pieholes of

elected sops

although that too

might be a wax

wane and narrow

but never eloquent

just trite, hackneyed and sniveled

crock.

Go ahead and dissect that you Merlin’s brew of feckless pedants and fellow travelers well met.

I blow not cold.

But hot!

See you at the Score.
