Of course Powell's (Portland) is on the list.  I was chastised there by a geeky minion for bringing a scone into the rare book room.  I found a rare book about Aleister Crowley and demanded a discount because a page was torn out.  I got it, after being accused of tearing the page out myself, when I told the coont at the counter that if I had torn it out, it would surely be on my person, and invited her to search for herself.

Are you happy to see me, or is that just a scone in your codpiece?

Bitch.  I couldn't bring myself to tear a page out of a book I own, much less one I don't.

There is an area of Omaha called The Dundee.  It used to be the western edge of town, but today it's been swallowed by miles of westward expansion (the eastern boundary is a river).  When I lived there, there was a used book store there, next to a shabby theater, the kind people called an "art house".  Next to that was a bar with good beer, and there was a flow amongst them, such that nobody cared if you brought a pint into the movie or a book to the bar.  One day I discovered a heavy book of Japanese erotic art (Hokusai, etc.) and it was pricey, I don't remember, 45 bucks or so, prolly the most expensive book in the store.  I left it on the shelf an proceeded toward the river, then thought, what the hell, I have 45 bucks but I don't have that book, so I turned around and went back, but the book was gone.  Probably all the other stuff is gone by now - it seems there is still a bookstore there with the same name, but it's been refurblished, so it's not the same store.  Going back is not an option.  Carpe Diem.

Scone's what?  Scone's mamma?  Martha Stewart can probably read.

You would have been more likely to instill fear of physical ejection, if not bad grammar, with your Beowulf demeanor,  I'll give you that.  The minion followed me with all the menace of a Pit Yorkie.

It's not like I was thumbing through the Book of Kells with greasy thumbs, drooling blueberry rem-nants upon it.  The scone was in a bag; I never made a move to open it.  That would have never occurred to me, anymore than tearing a book.  That's what was so insulting about the clerk.  Being accused of being a cheapskate, meh.  A book vandal, that's another story.
 

I'll refer to this list decide what I'll do, say in city numbered five.

 

Did you post the wrong link?  It doesn't seem like any cities are listed or numbered in that piece.

Apparently I clicked on a link in the wrong post.  It brought me to this: http://realpants.com...ry-publishing/, which had far too many words for serious consideration.

I considered you might have entered the apostrophe wrongly on purpose for whatever reason, but elision?  What?  Scone us?  I still don't get it.  No matter.  Obvious to all here means obvious to three or four people, so I don't feel terribly outnumbered.

I can recommend the Monteleone.  Good Ramos Gin Fizz there, nice rooms too.  Hopping on a walking tour would be tiring though, not to mention people might think there's something wrong with you, even in New Orleans.

If you want to deal with the Monteleone, make sure you call THEIR number and speak to someone in the actual building.  When I arranged for a room there most recently, for me and Grim (Tails of the Cockatiel), I first called a number I got off the Internet.  The first clue that this was a mistake was the Pakistani accent on the other end, but you never know, maybe he was employed there.  But then when he had to ask in what city the hotel was located, I realized I was barking up the wrong tree entirely.  A more thoroughly prepared call was answered by a woman with a YAT accent; and as that would indicate, she was actually at the desk in the Monteleone.  Got a very good rate, too, lower than the scam outfit was offering.

Ever see your doppelganger?  I did.  I turned a corner in a store to walk between two rows of shelves and simultaneously, as with a mirror image, I turned the opposite corner and walked toward me.  My heart skipped a beat, I kid you not.  Supposedly you die when it happens.  It turned out to be a guy of my height and weight, same hair and very similar face, etc. dressed the same way.  But in the few seconds between the event and the brain supplying the answer, I was as good as dead, literally paralyzed.

I always thought that the best way to find a poet is to follow some poetry to the source, like a trail of honey to a hive.

At the end of the trail, often there is a poet who doesn't know it (that's where FV comes in).  Kirk comes to mind, and Mr. Rabid, as repeat offenders, but there were many one-hit wonders.

The people mentioned in that article, with the exception of Brautigan, who is only mentioned in a comment (writer didn't do his homework), they got together one day in the 50s and had "poet" T-shirts printed up, and bestowed them upon one another.  I have yet to read a word from any of them that stuck me as interesting, much less as poetry.

I'm not talking about the prose of Kerouac and Snyder, which is more than okay, but not exactly poetry.

That's my opinion.  Your results may vary.

Being dead Brautigan was

It was Ferlinghetti that had one

t-shirt made for Ginsberg. Allen

then sought more for his friends.

He was that kind of guy. Formed

a foundation to distribute his

royalties around to the others.

Hardly a pretentious pretender.

 

Howl changed more about attitudes and realities

not just in Amerika but in the world writ large

then anything anybody ever wrote at Vee Farte.

Including key translations which were read by all.

Well said.  With Ferlinghetti as a publisher, I have no problem; no pretense there.

 

To his critics, Brautigan was willfully naive. Lawrence Ferlinghetti said of him, "As an editor I was always waiting for Richard to grow up as a writer. It seems to me he was essentially a naïf, and I don't think
he cultivated that childishness, I think it came naturally. It was like he was much more in tune with the trout in America than with people."

 

Essentially naive, with an appreciation of trout vs. people, is halfway toward poetry.  Howl - far too many words, trying to sledge-hammer readers toward an understanding .... of what?  It reads like a glorification of a louchefest.

Kaddish is a much betterer poem

and gets a fraction of the attention.

It doesn't reflect the times the same way.

 

Howl is verbose and over the top,

it plays with surrealism for levity

meaning it misunderstands it aesthetically.

 

Butt you have to hear it straight

from the breath, in the breath

of the author. And then wow.

I read a piece by somebody not long ago

that said exactly that. It might have been

Richard Hell, but I rather think not.

A NYC poet who thought Howl overly long,

tedious and completely overrated.

And then he heard it in Ginsburg's own voice.

I think the opening is genius, butt

I think the poem as a whole depends

on the rush and pause, the phrasing

and intonations that Allen gave it.

 

I think this is true of much of his work.

Oh, Ginsberg was onto, and invested

time and research proving the connection

between the CIA and their involvement

in supporting drug trafficking in Asia.

 

I don't argue Allen wasn't the greatest poet

and his chasing of fame was tedious

his historical nakedness in front of Amerika

was invaluable to pulling the blinders down.

Poetry: Gregory Corso at the top of his game

was the absolute best of them all. Hands down.

Gary Snyder's college roommate and character

in Kerouac's Dharma Bums, Philip Whalen,

is my other favorite among the beats.

He became a true Buddhist monk in charge

of a real live American monastery.

Diane DiPrima's pretty damn formidible too.

Read her Memoirs of a Beatnik.

It's basically good old Olympia Press

porn. Olympia Press had a niche.

The way I heard it is that Maurice Girodias

the publisher kept imploring DiPrima

to add more sex. More sex! MORE SEX!!!

What's real and what sells? Who knows now.

But it keeps getting reprinted over and over.

Obviously you guys are are far more familiar with the scribblings of these people, so maybe I don't even belong in this discussion.  I'm not adverse to exploration and possible reconsideration.  I had an interview with a panel of generals when I was 17 or so, the object being an appointment to West Point.  The Army barber who cut my hair in preparation for the sordid affair told me to talk about golf.  They love that shit, said he.  I said I don't know anything about golf.  He said just mention Arnold Palmer, that will impress them.  But as it turned out, they didn't ask about golf.  One of them did ask me, who was my favorite poet.  I said Ginsberg.  I had only a vague idea who the hell Ginsberg was, having read about him in Life magazine.  I think it was the issue with a burning joint on the cover.  I did not get the gig, but I knew I didn't really want it and was just going through the motions, so ... back to my job at the auto partz store, until the draft put a much-needed stop to that.

 

I just saw a TV show about the decipherment of the Egyptian hieroglyphics.  In the south of Egypt is a temple with giant statues, and for a couple thousand years, people wondered, who is that colossus?  It's carved right on there, bigger than shit, it was there all the time, for all to see: The symbol for the sun, Ra, followed by a symbol that stands for the pronunciation of "M" (even looks like an M), followed by some snakey S's.  Ramses - Child of the Sun, says I built that shit.

 

But their sense is hard-nosed and socio-political.

 

This rubs me the wrong way with Ginsberg as much as anything else he did.  Prolly not many modern major generals appreciate it, either.

 

The best pure melody and music.

Holy fuck!!! I never knew Ferlinghetti's middle name is Monsanto??? Whoa.

Gregory Corso at the top of his game was the absolute best of them all.

 

I just skimmed a few lines, and I like what I saw, but better than Brautigan, not.  Not for me, anyway.  A lot like Brautigan, for sure.

 

Often, in some steep ancestral book,
when I find myself entangled with leopard-apples
and torched-skin mushrooms,
my cypressean skein outreaches the recorded age
and I, as though tipping a pitcher of milk,
pour secrecy upon the dying page.

 

I'm pretty sure I've done that.  I found an anal-y-sis:

 

"There are many exclamation marks in the poem. The speaker is excited. He or she has strong feelings on the subject that is described in the poem."

 

But that was generated by a computer.  Reminds of Elaine, on Seinfeld, telling her ex-publisher boss, Mr. Lipman, that the sign on his muffin shop was bad.

Elaine, objecting to the exclamation point: "It's not top of the muffin TO YOU!"

Lipman: "No, no, it IS!"

Mentioning Ginsburg as a favorite

to a bunch of star-shouldered order anals

makes me hungry for lunch at Alice's Restaurant.

Corso learned his poetic chops in prison.

He has a surprising solid grasp on classics.

In some perverse sense it was time well spent.

Things later slipped away with heroin use.

All the old movies are new again for me so that's a good thing.

I haven't been into poetry since my teens, as I recall I

don't really care for it. I never have much to say myself, but I like to read if I have the time, everything, obsessively and I end up reading about the poets, like here.

It's above my head, once in awhile I'm compelled to say something, easier for me to make it instead of say it, and I'm happier and more effective when I do that.
