a new poem: the buzz from the city
REMOVED FOR EDITING.
I have been working on this off and on today, and I am thinking about taking it to class tomorrow night. I have been reading and re-reading “Howl” the last couple of days (also for class). The only connection is that it put “the city” on my brain.
I did not, obviously, attempt to mimic the style or the length or the breadth of Ginsberg’s famous poem. He had a howl that went on a long time. This is my buzz, and I can’t sustain it much beyond this. My mouth is fatigued from all the “zzzz” sounds. But I had fun dumping bee images in with the city images and repeating other sounds in addition to the “zzzzz.”
