Inspiration

“America, why are your libraries full of tears?” Allen Ginsberg ……………………………………………………………………………………………… Some people take drugs, some fuck and some scream in search of inspiration. For me, the one thing that continues to push my questions and my mind is Allen Ginsberg’s ‘America’. A 1950’s account that signals the begnning of the end, with incredible foresight, of the super nation, and democracy in its ambitional form. Words have an uncanny ability to strike me down, and listening to this poem, the voice of Ginsberg delivering these words helps me to step back from the total informaion culture, helps me to observe and then, begin to record.   ginsberg.png
