Allen Ginsberg

Homeless compleynt

Pardon me buddy, i didn't mean to bug you
but I came from Vietnam
where I killed a lot of Vietnamese gentlemen
a few ladies too
and I couldn't stand the pain
and got a habit out of fear
I've gone through rehab and I'm clean
but I got no place to sleep
and I don't know what to
with myself right no

I'm sorry buddy, I didn't mean to bug you
but it's cold in the alley
my heart's sick alone
and I'm clean, but my life's a mess
Third Avenue
and E. Houston Street
on the corner traffic island under a red light
wiping your windshield with a dirty rag.

Irwin Allen Ginsberg (Paterson, New Jersey, 1926 – 1997). Poeta beat.
