There was that night on St. Mark's Place?
At St. Mark's Church
I stand corrected – At St. Mark's Church
OCC Q PIE Wall Street
We were going to change the world – again
Just like our parents thought they would in the 60s
Just like their parents thought they did in the 40s
But you remember that night?
It was the Poetry Project
Yeah! The ghosts of Ginsberg and other dead rebels
We all brought food
It was a potluck
Thanksgiving with the dispossessed
...many of them bad
...many of them worse
I didn't know what to wear, and you said
Wear what you would to court
And the music
That folkie from Minnesota
Who was heading down to New Orleans
Channeling Woody Guthrie with a guitar strap string
That was a night!
That was just another night on St. Mark's Place
