Another Lion For Real sampler. How about “Gregory Corso’s Story“?
Allen’s description – “A little anecdote the poet (Gregory) Corso told me around 1951″, “Bill Frisell‘s delicate setting turns around this memory of buried innocence.”

Gregory Corso’s Story
The first time I went
to the country to New Hampshire
when I was about eight
there was a girl I always used to paddle with
with a plywood stick.
We were in love,
so the last night there
we undressed in the moonlight
and showed each other our bodies,
then we ran singing back to the house.
