really liked it
Read from September 03 to October 04, 2010

Sort of a 3 1/2 star, Ginsberg at his best is amazing, and the title poem is one of my favorite poems, but he likes to make himself vulnerable and expose the process of his writing and eschew polish, so by its very nature, his poetry is a mixed bag.
