north beach nocturne

A mash-up of Kerouac and Coltrane with some shots I took on a trip to Sario's and City Lights Books yesterday evening.




Praised be man


By Jack Kerouac


Praised be man, he is existing in milk

and living in lilies -

And his violin music takes place in milk

and creamy emptiness -

Praised be the unfolded inside petal

flesh of tend'rest thought -

(petrels on the follying

wave-valleys idly

sing themselves asleep) -

Praised be delusion, the ripple -

Praised be the Holy Ocean of Eternity -

Praised be I, writing, dead already and

dead again -

Dipped in acid inkl

the flamd

of Tim

the Anglo Oglo Saxon Maneuvers

Of Old Poet-o's -


Praised be wood, it is milk -

Praised be Honey at the Source -

Praised be the embrace of soft sleep

- the valor of angels in valleys

of hell on earth below -

Praised be the Non ending -

Praised be the lights of earth-man -

Praised be the watchers -

Praised be my fellow man

For dwelling in milk


-Mexico City Blues, 228th chorus (1964)</i
