Under silver wing

    San Francisco's towers sprouting

                thru thin gas clouds,

    Tamalpais black-breasted above Pacific azure

        Berkeley hills pine-covered below--

Dr Leary in his brown house scribing Independence


                  typewriter at window

         silver panorama in natural eyeball--

Sacramento valley rivercourse's Chinese

        dragonflames licking green flats north-hazed

    State Capitol metallic rubble, dry checkered fields

           to Sierras- past Reno, Pyramid Lake's

           blue Altar, pure water in Nevada sands'      

                brown wasteland scratched by tires

          Jerry Rubin arrested!  Beaten, jailed,

                 coccyx broken--

Leary out of action--"a public menace...

        persons of tender years...immature

              judgement...pyschiatric examination..."

i.e. Shut up or Else   Loonybin or Slam

Leroi on bum gun rap, $7,000

         lawyer fees, years' negotiations--

SPOCK GUILTY headlined temporary, Joan Baez'

       paramour husband Dave Harris to Gaol

Dylan silent on politics, & safe--

         having a baby, a man--

Cleaver shot at, jail'd, maddened, parole revoked,

Vietnam War flesh-heap grows higher,

         blood splashing down the mountains of bodies

                 on to Cholon's sidewalks--

Blond boys in airplane seats fed technicolor

        Murderers advance w/ Death-chords

    Earplugs in, steak on plastic

                   served--Eyes up to the Image--

What do I have to lose if America falls?

    my body? my neck? my personality?

                                        June 19, 1968
