A meditation in poem form on the Beat poet and cultural icon from Ed Sanders, who was close to Ginsberg. A nice association, inscribed to Ken Mikolowski, who with his wife Ann founded the Alternative Press. For more than 30 years, the Alternative Press published unbound letterpress-printed mail art, including the work of Beat and Black Mountain writers and poets from their native Detroit. Ginsberg was a frequent collaborator.
