I don't care what happens to my body
throw ashes in the air, scatter 'em in East River

    Bravo! A sympathetic self-portrait/eulogy, though the self-as-subject-type expressionism would boggle even Whitman. Lots of good characterizations, here; lots of nice ghostly evocations; lots of nicely palpable sensual data. Creating a sympathetic self- the geist of the poem- is perhaps Ginsberg's forte. Curiosly observant of the tradition wherein the deceased is visited by 'presences' with whom he interacted. Only natural, I suppose. (Report) Reply

    Nice poem! Lots of sensual and vibrant emotions infused in 1 long self-eulogy! Daring and intimate... (Report) Reply
