  1. If Allen was alive he would be Speaking out against the murder of George Floyd at the hands of the police, prophesying peace chanting Black Lives Matter on the frontlines. “When the mode of the music changes, the walls of the city shake,” echo his teachings, remembered thru a fog at this time of writing: the city is shaking is shaking cities our cities are shaking—the music in our moment is in the streets the streets are the music and it’s worth giving some space, on this website, to what’s going on, so what’s going on, Allen Ginsberg Project? What’s the word?

    Wishes of bloom warmth well felt birthdays to Ginsberg’s living “I am the Scottsboro Boys” phantom grey beard & may all sentient beings everywhere find happiness and peace of heart.
