sylvia plath's revenge

beat, yeah

i wrote this for my self proclaimed beatnik day during which i drank a lot of coffee and chainsmoked while writing poetry.

a street
slick with acid rain
on this cold autumn night
humans floating through
like faded ghosts
the shadows in their faces
taste like stale coffee
and their pale lips
of week old ashes

one man on the corner of fifth
with grubby hands dancing
like soft wings over his
worn drums
has the evening's sunset
in his eyes
and another has the
next morning's sunrise
in his scribbled poetry
