Kerouac's poems are not for everyone. But if your the type of person that notices the little things in life, like the defeated face that a gas station cashier may wear, or the deep wrinkles of your grandmothers hands, or the morning songs of sparrows, than these are the poems for you. The wonder of Kerouac is that he takes all of the very real matters of the soul and deals with them so simply, so delicately. He may have lived awhile ago, but whenever I read any of his work I feel like I am connecting to a kindred spirit. He knows the world, in all its harshness and majesty. He is one of the few people that just get it.

this collection of kerouac's poems was a great dissapointment. i love his fiction (especially on the road), but his poetry left something to be desired.
