Howl: the “Neighborhood Clean-up Day” edition
for Allen Ginsberg
What beast of remote control fingers and plastic destruction toppled the recycling bin and dumped its contents onto the street?
Moloch! Desperation! Litter! Monstrousness! Recycling bins and windy spring days! Cups flattened by cars! T-shirts soaking up gutter water! Old boxes marked by tire tracks!
Moloch! Moloch! Daymare of Moloch! Moloch the homeless! Hungry Moloch! Moloch the hangover of Saturday morning!
