Printers Ink is the Greatest Explosive

If you think there is a new dark age coming —
you’re right.
But go to the City Lights bookstore anyway.
Ferlinghetti is still alive,
you can see
what a real bookstore looks like,
hear strange and wonderful singing
from below in the alley,
listen to people whisper as if in church,
sit in the poet’s chair
and feel
all is not
yet
lost.
