Aqutaq Getting Her Wild On in the Woods of Marin, Marin CA 2012
Strange now to think of you, gone without corsets & eyes, while I walk on the sunny pavement of Greenwich Village / downtown Manhattan, clear winter noon, and I’ve been up all night, talking, talking, reading the Kaddish aloud, listening to Ray Charles blues shout blind on the phonograph / the rhythm the rhythm—and your memory in my head three years after
from Kaddish, by Allen Ginsberg in memory of his mother
