Title: Mind Breaths
Author: Allen Ginsberg
Page Count/Review Word Count: 123
It seems like every collection of Ginsberg’s work has some pieces of stand-out poetry, and this one’s no different – Mind Breaths, the titular poem of the collection, is like an extension of Howl, and Sweet Boy, Gimme Yr Ass is a triumphant celebration of the poet’s sexuality. Keep your eyes peeled, too, for Hadda Be Playing on the Jukebox, a vicious indictment of the government and the wars that they carry out that was adapted by Rage Against the Machine.
Ginsberg’s work here is as sharp as ever, and it’s a pretty short collection – too short, in fact, for you not to read it.
