Reading From California Beat Poetry



Page 131 Boulevard Marine Layer Cake




Cold and heavy

gray wet loneliness

blankets the low sky

silver buffalo herds of ocean magic

spread their dull ghost hooves

across a willing sky

The boulevard’s cake bakes in a

chilly oven:

spoon sauce candy

ancient thought squares

marble top misery

short skirt misery

disappearing autos

yellow fog eyes

green man (and bicycle)

pizza window glow

street sweeper howl

keys locks of hope

tiny ball of sunshine


little darling, little darling

too late, too late

the cake is all gone
