Please Master, Allen Ginsberg, April is Poetry Month and We Celebrate Our Queer Poet

Posted: March 30, 2015 in *Celebration*, HIGH queer art, Yum Yum

April is National Poetry month and we at this blog celebrate queer poet Allen Ginsberg. Recently in South Windsor a high school English teacher was suspended and then fired for reading the poem Please Mater to his senior English Class. This poem was written in 1968 and is included within the book The Fall Of America.  Listen to the poem read by Ginsberg.
