This is, by far, my favorite collection of poetry. The poems speak to me more than any others. In particular, I enjoy the humorous poem "Dog" and "I am Waiting," a repetitive poem of longing, though there is not a bad poem contained in this work. This book turned me on to Ferlinghetti and also to the works of Henry Miller, who strongly influenced the poet.
