Pictures of the Gone World

Pictures of the Gone World - Lawrence Ferlinghetti Tempted to give it a 3 1/2, but I have a history of being harsh on poetry. So I'll call it a soft 4.

"A poem is a mirror walking down a strange street."

"Silence hung like a lost idea."

"And each poem a picture at an exhibition upon a blank wall made of concrete chaos."

That last one makes me wonder if he was referencing Mussorgsky.
