Read the details on the EV Grieve blog about the East Village.

While we’re on the subject of Ginsberg and NYC, check out this article at Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York  about the Kiev, one of Allen’s favorite NY restaurants. Scroll down to see a wonderful photograph of Allen having lunch with Quentin Crisp at the Kiev. (Yes, it’s the same Kiev mentioned in the King Missile song Detachable Penis ).

  • Nin_Amour

    By
    Peace Wilson

    elixir of anais nin
    flows in your
    veins l’amour.

    marrow of filigreed
    fire infuses your
    treasured lyric
    lines of gold,

  • your luscious curves
    flow out from the soul
    of an angel in a strange land.

    your lush scarlet lips
    kiss the promise
    of the rose’s rise
    from a prelude of frost,

    your dewy-eyed
    yearning draws
    this sojourner
    across the wilderness
    of forgotten sighs.
