    of the satanic thistle that raises its horned symmetry
    flowering above sister grass-daisies’ pink tiny
    bloomlets angelic as lightbulbs—
    Allen Ginsberg (b. 1926)

    Elizabeth Janeway (b. 1913)

    “Ask the perfumers, ask the blacking-makers, ask the hatters, ask the old lottery-office keepers—ask any man among ‘em what my poetry has done for him, and mark my words, he blesses the name of Slum. If he’s an honest man, he raises his eyes to heaven, and blesses the name of Slum—mark that!
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)
