a new style

Posted to WritersAndGenres

alive are we in new york city
a group of poets learned in basements in cleveland
subsidizers of thoughts - gathered wits
alive are we in the basement of a Zinc
where the new greats walk - alive
hittin the skins, smoking, drinking and living

not the notes of monk - but of hicks
skins provided by jones
and a bass beat by a cat named alex blake

hip shit - beatles - some help from our friends
yes you all - i do not jest
nor am i a poet pest, but a hipster with zest

for life
for respect
for reality
