Sideshow Media Group offers a series of small books of poetry that is a tribute partially to the Pocket Poets Series that featured Allen Ginsberg’s Howl and a host of others. Lawrence Ferlinghetti launched the series in 1955 to be sold at his City Light’s Bookstore in San Francisco, and is still inspiring minds all over the planet.

Here is one poem featured in “Hollywood Boulevard” :
Block One 6901 Greta Garbo
Dark and mysterious, the beauty of Camille
out of the shadows and onto the reel
Flesh and the devil “I vant to be alone”
her star is silent, her fame has grown
Anna Christie, the Oscar was close
I walked by and heard her ghost
Never again was one so pure
Never again was one so sure
Days of the silents, she broke the hearts
Talking in pictures, Greta departs…
