Poetry of Issue #8        Page 39


It is disconcerting enough
having your favorite Dylan
& Cohen anthems ampli-
fying the angst as you try
to decide what brand of
ramen or which avocados
to choose when the music
accompanies you down
the aisles of a supermarket
that is nowhere near
California. But when you
hear a recording by Allen
Ginsberg being used as the

where models strut the run-
way, with their small breasts
showing through sheer
blouses, it is time to ask
where are the saintly motor-
cyclists when you need them,
first to take Manhattan then
to take Berlin & then finally
to fuck the perpetrators of
these obscenities in the ass
so hard that there will be
no joy in their screaming.
