The beatniks had it right- a poet’s advice

Every time I go to San Francisco, I stop at City Lights Bookstore that was part founded by my favorite poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti. His poems are crazy electric live with his short sentences that say so much, and this quote has stuck in my head for years. When writing poetry and song lyrics, I try to pack the universe into 4 rhyming lines. You sound like you’re saying a little ditty, but you are talking about the whole of life.
