From Allen Ginsburg, Journals Mid-Fifties, 1954-1958--
10 Minute Sonnet
The cunts of wheelbarrows & the cocks of cars Fuck in the starry nite; Embarcadero, I'm working on the S.P. shifting bars of gold & lead & iron, Jailhouse Joe he works beside me, & I work by Mars, the fattened trucksman with his tattered No. Mailbags, Xmas, Frisco, whores of Port Time's truck rides down the hiway to the hill over the road home, over my nose a wart, Joe's in Carolina, Tangiers in Bill, Lucien's in N.Y., Neal's stopped short I'm all alone on the dock I made my will, all things tend to this moment, shadow, and the rest, the past, this is my mad meadow.
