beat??? um umgahwa, the beat has got the powha! hehe....
well, beats me!! hehe... i mean, MOI???
THANK all those who mentioned my name... i'm flattered... love the era!! keroac and ferlinghetti, oh my god, i sure am ready!! *wink*.... but WE are not BEAT, we are the NET GENERATION and we are here to stay...
but... JP, some of the poets here write in different styles at different times but at some time or another, all of those listed here, IMHO, have been influenced by the big Beat of ginsberg & the like... even though 'tis possible they all may not admit to it... lol....
corinne, haze, trevor, brad, passing shadows, local rebel, brian madden, bsquirrel, ryan, jbowie, desperado, sunshine, corazon, serenity, and martie
and i *KNOW* there's more and if i think of them... i'll come back... and if i skipped anybody who clearly knows they have been influenced by this era of writing, please forgive me.... it's late... or is it? aw hell, it's just later than we all think, y'know? so let's get to writing some really great poetry!!!
**** oh, and you might wanna add yourself, y'know??
what's the scoop? gonna beat us up for it? lol...
ok... don't wanna write? how 'bout a conga line to the tune of a hawaiin song.... everybody sing along....
~ all you can really ever expect out of life is a sincere apology and some decent poetry ~
