did you live those days
they delivered the paper
every day
telling the homies about
fables and fear

each moment we were
paradoxical lovers and
time flowed backwards
Subliminal jailbait teens
dropped hints of
bamboo kisses

Bless me St. Felix
I love the donuts,
dented drinks, wanna
be actors, Big mama
Thornton and the Nun
that opens the doors

I followed the blood
master to the ritual
waiting room of the
you know the one's
you told me about
in math class

Finally sir, you are
off the road.
oh yeah, THE END

A Coney Island of the Mind is a collection of poetry by Lawrence Ferlinghetti originally published in 1958. It contains some of Ferlinghetti’s most famous poems, such as “I Am Waiting” and “Junkman's Obbligato”, which were created for jazz accompaniment.

“I Am Waiting” (1958) ... for Alice in Wonderland to retransmit to me her total dream of innocence".

Ferlinghetti Blues (2001)

Want Ads One (2005) - Recordings of Ferlinghetti reading want ads, as featured on radio station KPFA in 1957, were recorded by Henry Jacobs and are featured on the Meat Beat Manifesto album 'At the Center'.

Ferlinghetti gave Canadian punk band Propagandhi permission to use his painting The Unfinished Flag of the United States, which features a map of the world painted in the stars and stripes, as the cover of their 2001 release Today's Empires, Tomorrow's Ashes.
