Poetry as insurgent art
is your book known to us at my start

that you are the best beatpoet
you showed how to do-it

today I wanna show you my great respect
you are poetry's sublimest effect

two years more than a century
you have been living in poetry's luxury
a monumental wealth
that increased your excellent health
