for Allen Ginsberg

tamer of the stars...
telling us of the Universal dance of joy
here's a loving tear
when the net of frightened men
and women...
shall have you tame....
a grocer's bill
and as Mozart lay dying
the grocer said NO and sent in the bailiffs
and the famous Baron advised a discreet pauperís funeral
more economical the Baron said
later we all convulsed with hysterical admiration
for dead geniuses made safe


Osiris hidden drama
