January 18, 2013- You Must Understand Dahling

Memory

Memory


I do
I have and
I will.
Everyone of us in his or her own way does
You were close enough to touch in Northampton.

I feel you but
I’m human enough to say
I miss you
and sure could you giving me a dressing down
Or some kinda kick in the eye

You set and kept the bar high
a bientot- plus tot chaque jour for each of us

save a place
if indeed there is a place
and space enough
and grace enough
for me and toute
la drole de gang
gang worldwide they were and are

Fondly yr friend
Campbell
in bleak Montreal midwinter
hoping this isn’t mawkish
But if it is it’s real and heartfelt
P.S. There’s a new kerouac bio which dovetails with Parkman
Perfectly distilled In Jacques et Gilles
