dear Allen

Posted to Action Poetry

i fell in love with you after hearing you
read this poem.

and the more i hear, the more i love
my love is unselfish
and i've shared your voice
with those who can offer
you their ears
and hearts

i continue to tell you
though i know
your modesty
forbids your
acknowledging me
on this board.

i expect no
love in return,
for that which
springs from me
asks no permission

walt whitman too
but mostly you, allen ginsberg

hear allen here
