LAWRENCE FERLINGHETTI IS ALIVE! & a fairy-tale-like news story


In honor of Lawrence Ferlinghetti‘s 98th birthday


I say, to a man in the drug store
check-out line not completely
out of nowhere. He’s wearing
a black and white City Lights shirt
with Lawrence’s handwriting.


“About a young Tuva girl, Saglana Salchak, from the Taiga forest in Siberia near the Mongolian border, who traveled hours to get help for her sick grandmother”

Nanci Lee – HAPPY

You told me that I am not happy
or not someone you think of as
happy and I sense that it came from
love or something wanting to be
