DPF / Ginsberg

For the father of first-thought-best-thought, an idea which may only work for a mind like Ginsberg’s, from The Best American Poetry 1997, edited by James Tate, series editor David Lehman.

from Is About / by Allen Ginsberg

Who cares what it’s all about?
I do! Edgar Allan Poe cares! Shelley cares! Beethoven and Dylan care.
Do you care? What are you about
or are you a human being with 10 fingers and two eyes?
