Then I assume you would have loved the little ceremony held right in the middle of E.3rd Street at the corner of Ave. B last weekend. The block of 3rd between C and B has been renamed.
Reverend Pedro Pietri Way.
Such a beautiful occurance. With his partner in poem Miguel Algarin -both were co-founders of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe where Ginsberg was an infrequent declaimer- presiding over the street ceremony at which a 12 year old spoke a wild, astonishing poem about the late reverend just as warm spring rain started to land.
Something was in perfect balance then and your blood just kind of slowed down a bit.
The grotesque idiot powers that be may lurch at getting the whole earth to fly off its hook but a small boy speaking a poem is the manifestation of our real destiny.
