Fourth Floor Dawn Up All Night Writing Letters

Written by: Allen Ginsberg | Biography
 | Quotes (15) |
 Pigeons shake their wings on the copper church roof
out my window across the street, a bird perched on the cross
surveys the city's blue-grey clouds. Larry Rivers
'll come at 10 AM and take my picture. I'm taking
your picture, pigeons. I'm writing you down, Dawn.
I'm immortalizing your exhaust, Avenue A bus.
O Thought! Now you'll have to think the same thing forever!

 New York, June 7, 1980, 6:48 A.M.
