Beat Poets

He was a new poet with the dew of youth
on his cheeks and childishness in his words. 
He spoke of his God, of love and of truth
with a pony-tailed naïveté which implored.  
Bicycles pedal through his posies chords.
He smiled when he spoke of A. Ginsberg, man..
nicotine stains the fingers of his hand.
thinking of the beat poets, Rexroth he'd read
tales of smoke ring round his brow garlanded
Dean resurrects in the cock of his head.

A new rooster was shy of twenty four
one ear ring, bow lips and shy of pretense
he wrote in a leather bound book of war.
He was all about peace, gentle innocence
yet the world, the world held troubles immense
A rebel of peace so like Siddhartha
to war he'd not go, not follow father..
A poet primed a new man with a calling
trying yet again to call each man brother
trying yet again to stop mankind's falling.


*Double Dizain

    So well crafted! The mood, the word selection, the cadence and the rhyming are all superb. Well done indeed! Best wishes, Keith

    what a cool way to do DIzain, Debs. Is this any one person or just a study of all the beat poets in general? Is it for any contest?

    One comes to a Debbie Guzzi poem always with a sense of inevitability ... to learn from broad wealth of wisdom the details of the subject matter, and know she is well read. One must be careful saying "well read" though, unless one means rounded exposure, or deep experience. Every poem she writes is like a biography, matters not how impersonal, it tells where she has been
