today... is Allen Ginsberg's birthday...

Allen Ginsberg
American
Poet

my pick for greatest poet of all time...

he wrote stuff in the 1950's I'm still a little afraid to thinq today...

and weathered an obscenity trial over 'HOWL' which resulted in a landmark ruling in favour of poetry and expression...

he helped unlock me...

rest in peace, cocksman and brave champion...

"I smoke marijuana every chance I get."
-- from 'America'
