Beats In Kansas: The Beat Generation in the Heartland


DOMINION and other poems
by Alan Russo, 1977

Cover art by Robert Branaman

An angel cry
summoned up from dungeons of disgust
where monarchs of the dark array.
We are driven to this painful union
by the unplugged startlets in our chest.

I can no more sing out the song,
through cycles run,
than the ring on the bathtub is, or does.
