Pictures of the Gone World (remix) ft. Lawrence Ferlinghetti
by Hunter Heath

     none of the sunday excursionists
     with their bottles and their baskets
heard the poet have
     a rhyming erection
among the charley noble chimneypots
below the forgotten
     plasterhead DANTE

a harlequin
     came naked among
the nursemaids
     and caught them pick their noses
this painter who couldn’t talk or tell anything
about what he
     meant
looked like just about the happiest painter
in all the world 

just generally
     ‘living it up’
