Poetry. Here are poems about Mexico and Tangier, Berkeley and the Bowery. Mid-fifties road poems, hymns and songs from God, drug poems, wine poems, dharma poems and Buddhist meditations. Poems to Beat friends, goofball poems, quirky haiku, and a fine, long elegy. POMES ALL SIZES today would seem to be more than the sum of its parts, revealing a questing Kerouac grown beyond the popular image of himself as a Beat on the Road. "Here's a treasure, in the mainstream of American Literature. to be appreciated by cognoscenti and literate strangers alike..."--Allen Ginsberg, from his introduction to the book.
