    I loved the eccentricity of his long auto poem. Love his sarcasm? (can't remember the right word) He gets it right. I think there is more pain from ignorance than from any joy. Yes, I like the way he expresses associated hypocrisy. His writing certainly appeals to me.

    You helped me change my life, I read Poet Of The Streets in Boulder Col. And hit it well people stood up at that coffee shop Penny Lane a few blocks from the Naropa Inst. I was so scared cause the size of the crowd grew because Ann Waldman had a book release up on the hill off Boulder... I ran out to get a half pint of Jim Beam and guzzeled down and nailled your poem did not stuttered at all and I have a stamer. I wish you the best.

Best Poem of Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Sometime During Eternity

Sometime during eternity
some guys show up
and one of them
who shows up real late
is a kind of carpenter
from some square-type place
like Galilee
and he starts wailing
and claiming he is hep
to who made heaven
and earth
and that the cat
who really laid it on us
is his Dad

And moreover
he adds
It's all writ down
on some scroll-type parchments
which some henchmen
leave lying around the Dead Sea somewheres
a long time ago
and which you won't even find
for a coupla thousand years or so
or at least for
ninteen hundred and ...

Read the full of Sometime During Eternity

I Am Waiting

I am waiting for my case to come up
and I am waiting
for a rebirth of wonder
and I am waiting
for someone to really discover America
and wail
and I am waiting
for the discovery
of a new symbolic western frontier
