American Artifact

The end of so many things. I'm a Ph.d. candidate now. A few years ago when I started this as a diary of music that I loved and listened to I was a high school dropout who'd been kicked out of college 5 times. Now it is something different. I lost some people along the way, and they were not replaced - indeed, they were irreplacible. So it goes.

Sunflower Sutra - Allen Ginsburg (1955)


You were never no locomotive, Sunflower, you were a
And you Locomotive, you are a locomotive, forget me
So I grabbed up the skeleton thick sunflower and stuck
it at my side like a scepter,
and deliver my sermon to my soul, and Jack's soul
too, and anyone who'll listen,
--We're not our skin of grime, we're not our dread
bleak dusty imageless locomotive, we're all
beautiful golden sunflowers inside, we're blessed
by our own seed & golden hairy naked
accomplishment-bodies growing into mad black
formal sunflowers in the sunset, spied on by our
eyes under the shadow of the mad locomotive
riverbank sunset Frisco hilly tincan evening
sitdown vision.
