Wild Dreams Of A New Beginning

Rating: 3.4

There's a breathless hush on the freeway tonight
Beyond the ledges of concrete
restaurants fall into dreams
with candlelight couples
Lost Alexandria still burns
in a billion lightbulbs
Lives cross lives
idling at stoplights
Beyond the cloverleaf turnoffs
'Souls eat souls in the general emptiness'

A piano concerto comes out a kitchen window

I love the poetry of Lawrence Ferlinghetti. In my view he manages to conjure up a fasinating vision of modern America!

Eyes smell flowers and become them/There's a deathless hush/on the freeway tonight........ | Glorious.
