Beat Poetry

What is America to you?  For me it will always be Ginsberg, Whitman, Ellison, Frost, Baraka, Faulkner, Hughes, Plath, Dylan, and Waits.  Literature is the creation of spirit.  It’s a confession and a song of praise.  If that’s not America; if that’s not what America could be, then my home is foreign and my place is without any roots at all.

Post some poetry and say what it means to you.
