San Francisco Beat

Broadway at Columbus
Chinatown fades into
little Italy, blessed by
Saint Francis of Assisi

omne ignotum

Chianti and Brad
at Ristorante Franchino
photos of young mama and
papa hang on the walls

buon appetito

City Lights, across the alley
Vesuvio Cafe where
50s Beats spouted prose
while pissing in the john

cool man

Ginsberg's Howl banned
Burroughts was Junkie
pre Condor and Carol Doda
Kerouac lived On the Road

the Beat bible

In that flicker between
when The Gate glows sienna
and neon lights Broadway
young poets of North Beach

hear the rhythm of the Beats

unquiet repose

electrical energy triggers
gates in the brain, synapses fire
impinge upon nervous system

grand mal, dis-ease
inflicted by the gods
activates pineal gland

supernova center eye
electric current overwhelms
causing failure in consciousness

mc2 = Energy = liberated matter
information travels faster
than light into the future

kundalini flow of energy
order out of chaos
