In Back Of The Real





In Back Of The Real - Allen Ginsberg

 railroad yard in San Jose 
     I wandered desolate 
in front of a tank factory 
     and sat on a bench 
near the switchman's shack. 

A flower lay on the hay on 
     the asphalt highway 
--the dread hay flower 
     I thought--It had a 
brittle black stem and 
     corolla of yellowish dirty 
spikes like Jesus' inchlong 
     crown, and a soiled 
dry center cotton tuft 
     like a used shaving brush 
that's been lying under 
     the garage for a year. 

Yellow, yellow flower, and 
     flower of industry, 
tough spiky ugly flower, 
     flower nonetheless, 
with the form of the great yellow 
     Rose in your brain! 
This is the flower of the World.
