silver panorama in natural eyeball--
Sacramento valley rivercourse's Chinese

Awesome poem by a very complex writer. It was intriguing reading after just having finished reading a biography about Jack Kerouac. So much about what this poem conveys now has a new life.

I lived in Sacramento for many years and what this poet says here about its rivercourse is true beyond ordinary recognition.
