I thought I’d write one sentence
while I’m here
it is a special place
i am wondering
a bit of magic
something in the air
might find its way
whether by accretion from the workshop
of Burroughs and Ginsburg
rendering the books and their powers
for their sacrifice
by addition of what little
on my own
to something gleaned by a sort of osmosis
and this is the sentence
though it is too long
to be a good one.
Remember to visit the summer’s main page. The year’s traveling is almost up, but there are many posts already up and more posts to go!

Perfect. Very Billy Collins. Tres magnifique.
Haha, thank you. I really never write poetry, but I wanted to write at least one sentence while i was there…
