Peak Kleenx

Today a poem by Beatnik Elise Nada Cowen:

Rookie [@ Civilization]

No love

No compassion

No intelligence

No beauty

No humility

Twenty-seven years is enough

Mother--too late--years of meanness--I'm sorry

Daddy--What happened?

Allen--I'm sorry

Peter--Holy Rose Youth

Berry--Such womanly bravery

Keith--Thank you

Joyce--So girl beautiful

Howard--Baby take care

Leo--open the windows and Shalom

Carol--Let it happen

Let me out now please--

--Please let me in

(that poem is believed to have been her last)
