Den Mother Dies

This is dedicated to Carolyn Cassady, who died Friday night. Quoting Brian Hassett, she was "The den mother to the entire Beat Generation." Jack Kerouac followed Neal and Carolyn to San Francisco, and the rest is... well, the rest.

I saw the soul of
San Francisco
at the Beat Museum
deep roots of
unapproved thought
dusty soldiers hijacked
by pseudo societies
silenced by full bellies 
and treadmill-wearied brains.

Now amoral consciences
step over bodies
on the street 
pursuing nothing of value
as priceless currency.
