I want a denim vest, ripped at the sleeves, grim patches and buttons. So I searched through the thrift shops. Everything was too large, or too tight, or cut in a style thatt was not quite right. In the isles were old ladies who probably bought the clothes donated by dead friends. In a corner, marked off for books, stood Ginsberg, bespectacled and urging, "You are not a locomotive!"
But I chugged on by, all steam and whistles, neck a bristle with eerie misease that Ginsberg is dead, like the old ladies' friends, and I can only find denim with sleeves.
