Happy Birthday, Allen Ginsberg


Beat poet Allen Ginsberg was born this date in 1926. He would have been 86 today. He died in 1997, living to  age 70 (versus Jack making it to 47).

I'm currently reading Kaddish and Other Poems 1958-1960. I recommend it.

Read some Ginsberg today in honor of his birthday at Poets.org.
