beat

beat

I’m watching a movie
about the beats
based on a novel
of the beat generation
so I’m interpreting
something I’m watching
filtered through
the rough pragmatism
of a movie shoot
inspired by
a book
that fictionalized
the truth
the writer lived
and I know
it’s a shadow
of a shade
of a ghost
but for as long as it’s on
I can pretend
I was there
with them
and you know
I think they transcend
time and space
after all

their truth lives
however remote
