poems and haikus by Kerouac

Today is lets perve over Kerouac day. (my birthday)

In Vain

The stars in the sky
In vain
The tragedy of Hamlet
In vain
The key in the lock
In vain
The sleeping mother
In vain
The lamp in the corner
In vain
The lamp in the corner unlit
In vain
Abraham Lincoln
In vain
The Aztec empire
In vain
The writing hand: in vain
(The shoetrees in the shoes
In vain
The windowshade string upon
the hand bible
In vain—
The glitter of the greenglass
ashtray
In vain
The bear in the woods
In vain
The Life of Buddha
In vain)

The taste

The taste
of rain
– Why kneel? 13b0098040fe345a7d09eec984d6c55a

Birds singing
in the dark
—Rainy dawn.jack-kerouac-tune-radio

Men and women
Yakking beneath
the eternal void

Walking on water wasn’t
Built in a day
