"In the midst of the broken consciousness of mid-twentieth century suffering anguish of separation from my own body and its natural infinity of feeling its own self one with all self, I instinctively seeking to reconstitute that blissful union which I experience so rarely. I took it to be supernatural an gave it holy Name thus made hymn laments of longing and litanies of triumphancy of Self over mind-illusion mechano-universe of un-feeling Time in which I saw my self my own mother and my very nation trapped desolate our worlds of consciousness homeless and at war except for the original trembling of bliss in breast and belly of every body that nakedness rejected in suits of fear that familiar defenseless living hurt self which is myself same as all others abandoned scared to own unchanging desire for each other. These poems almost unconscious to confess the beatific human fact, the language intuitively chosen as in trance & dream, the rhythms rising on breath from belly thru breast, the hymn completed in tears, the movement of the physical poetry demanding and receiving decades of life while chanting Kaddish the names of Death in many worlds the self seeking the Key to life found at last in our self." --Allen Ginsberg, August 28, 1963

Author's Preface, Reader's Manual"Arrangement of Text"Herein author has assembled all his poetry books published to date rearranged in straight chronological order to compose an autobiography. "Collected Poems" includes seven volumes published in City Lights Pocket Poets series: "Howl, Kaddish, Reality Sandwiches, Planet News, The Fall of America, Mind Breaths," and "Plutonian Ode," backbone of three decades' writing. Books circulated less widely by delicate small presses (excepting song experiments in "First Blues") fill gaps in the sequence. Youthful poetries were printed in "Empty Mirror" and "The Gates of Wrath." Three odd books, "Angkor Wat, Iron Horse" and "Airplane Dreams," interleaf poems of the 1960s. "Poems All Over the Place" flash on spots of time from President Kennedy's assassination day, through 1972 Presidentiad, to author's meditation practice in his fiftieth year. Among half-dozen poems taken from prose journal and letter books, one singular rhapsody, "The Names," falls into place, with motifs from "Howl" particularized in 1958. "Many Loves" manuscript, detailing first erotic encounter with a lifelong friend, not printed till now for reasons of prudence and modesty, completes a sequence of writing that included "Sunflower Sutra" and "America," Berkeley 1956. "Advantages of Chronological Order""The Gates of Wrath"'s imperfect literary rhymes are interspersed with "Empty Mirror"'s raw-sketch practice poems. Disparate simultaneous early styles juxtaposed aid recognition of a grounded mode of writing encouraged by Dr. Williams, "No ideas but in things." "A Strange New Cottage in Berkeley" precedes "A Supermarket in California" because it wascomposed on top of the same page, originally one poem in two parts, here rejoined. Travel poems Calcutta-Saigon-Angkor Wat-Japan, 1963, mixed through three separate books, now cohere in sequence. Cross-country Auto Poesy chro

Van Jones said it well: "If we're going to end this fiscal madness and start rebuilding America, we're going to have to get creative! We need a tsunami of music, film, poetry and art. The Culture of Possibility shows us how creativity can take our story back from Corporation Nation, tilting the culture towards justice, equity, and innovation. I urge you to read this book!" We are in the midst of seismic cultural change. In the old paradigm, priorities are shaped by a mechanistic worldview that privileges whatever can be numbered, measured, and weighed; human beings are pressured to adapt to the terms set by their own creations. How we feel, how we connect, how we spend our time, how we make our way and come to know each other—these are all part of the scenery. In the new paradigm, things are given their true value. People care passionately about how they and the things they value are depicted. They revive themselves after a long workday with music or dance, by making something beautiful for themselves or their loved ones, by expressing their deepest feelings in poetry or watching a film that never fails to comfort. In the new paradigm, it is understood that culture prefigures economics and politics; it molds markets; and it expresses and embodies the creativity and resilience that are the human species’ greatest strengths. The bridge between paradigms is being built by artists and others who have learned to deploy artists’ cognitive, imaginative, empathic, and narrative skills. The bridge is made of the stories that the old paradigm can’t hear, the lives that it doesn’t count, the imagined future it can’t encompass. Using first-person stories, drawing on both history and headlines, embracing new knowledge from education, medicine, cognitive science, spirituality, politics, and other realms, The Culture of Possibility shows why, how, and where we can build a bridge to a sustainable future. The Culture of Possibility: Art, Artists & The Future comprises two main sections with a prelude: “Hidden in Plain Sight: Twenty-Eight Reasons to Pursue The Public Interest in Art” features 28 short chapters (most no more than a page or two) exploring emergent knowledge from many realms including commerce, anthropology, social science, medicine, spirituality, cognitive science, art, public policy, and others. Each chapter highlights stories, research, and emerging developments that point to a specific public interest in cultivating empathy, imagination, and community through artistic and cultural creativity. “The World Is Upside Down” examines the culture of Corporation Nation in which human pleasures are channeled into optimal modes of consumption, each purchase triggering the need for more. People’s own cultural heritages have been devalued in favor of a commoditized American culture constructed of an idealized past and a product-placement future. A steady doom-beat tries to keep us feeling less than, lubricating the system with the perpetual hope that our malaise can be cured by the right acquisition. This is juxtaposed with art and other forms of cultural expression: art is the practice of freedom. How art and artists are treated testifies to social well-being. And culture’s latent power to actualize well-being is enormous, because its contains the raw material of self-determination and connection that will allow us to outgrow Corporation Nation. Using first-person stories, drawing on both history and headlines, this section calls for two types of action: greatly enlarging our understanding of art’s public purpose and importance and greatly reducing corporate domination. Although the official story may see the two as unrelated, the relationship is actually close: artists’ skills of social imagination, improvisation, empathy, and resourcefulness are needed to break Corporation Nation’s grip on our collective sense of the possible, overturning the inherited powerlessness that consigns the many to live as subjects of the few.
