HALO ‘ROUND GREGORY
Freres humains qui apres nous vivez
N'ayez les cuers contre nour endurci
Madougal Street 1958
that's Corso - poete maudit. . .
how many years glow Gregory
in & out of consciousness
"the most natural poet in the world"
one of the Kerouac School's first "hires"
The Percy Bysche Shelley Chair of
Elegant Poetics or
The Catullus Chair of Scathing
How about The Francois Villon Chair of
Street Wisdom. . .
Nawww, he said from sickbed
those weeks ago,
I could never take that
seriously - - I'd screw up
too much. . .
Corso's fast Socratic Rap lit up
more than a few
you wanna talk you wanna fight?
show me show me! (etonnez-moi)
there's no good women writers since
& etc. . .
Crazy Wisdom, the Tibetan Lama nodded,
Gregory's got it
