I remember watching the comet from my backyard even with the urban lights blazing. It lasted several nights as did one of my neighbor's Hale beer parties which got really old.

I found this (which is interesting altogether):
Quote:

The books in the Pocket Poets series were slim, undersized volumes, about 6 by 5 inches, usually with simple black-and-white cover design and typography. Symbolically, the material form of the Pocket Poets suggests that the book holds something written for everyone, regardless of class or educational status. The Pocket Poets were designed to fit in the palm of the reader's hand and in the back pocket of a pair of blue jeans.

(...)

Of course what sort of books one reads is also an indicator of social status. This is another realm in which Howl and Other Poems is a great book—it betokens its readers' status as rebels and nonconformists. This status inheres in the physical design of the book beyond its being a paperback original. The size and shape of the book itself, along with the content, speaks to issues of class and conformity. Even today, the power of this counter-canon is made evident by the simple fact that the design for the Pocket Poets edition of Howl and Other Poems hasn't changed in the 62 years since its publication.
So I think it's not photoshopped! :)

I am not around much
and am observant even less

so I'm just getting around to realizing there may be some need to say that as these things don't go in sequence, I wasn't talking to you.

There may also be no need.
For various reasons.
One of the possible ones being that you weren't talking to me.

One can never be sure.

I've often wondered if Veruki
Rhymes with cookie or with spooky,
Not suspecting ki'd be kah.
And I will bet a lemoncello
Stephi's bra-tender would bellow
If I brushed against her bra:
"Stay the hell away from Stephi!"
(His voice is in the treble clef -- he
Doesn't much inspire awe)
I would say "I'm not romancing,
I just came here for the dancing --
Get away from me, Francois."
And by the way, what kind of bouncer
Flutes his voicings like a flouncer
And answers to the name Francois?
"Where is V?" I'd say, disguising
That my up had not been wising,
“Bring martinis with foie gras.”
Holy shit, look at these prices!
“Coke, for me, with two lime slices,
Straws for two, and oysters, raw.”
Here I sit, the tall guy, waiting,
Sipping Coke, anticipating,
Lonely vivre losing joie.
