Kousa Dogwood 2014




It’s an annual Allen Ginsberg tradition – it’s the flowering kousa dogwood, planted in his honor, by friends and supporters at the St Mark’s Church (his “church” – home to the venerable St Mark’s Poetry Project – (“The Poetry Project burns like red hot coal in New York’s snow”, Allen once wrote) – and flowering each year, right around this time (perfect natural timing) on his birthday – although this year it’s been a pretty tough winter/an alarmingly late spring – (notwithstanding, you can still see those little white flowers brazenly peeking out).
