Here's a clip of Ted Berrigan on youtube reading poetry. I hope you find it inspirational, or can at least view it from your computer. He's reading about New York City here. What would you say about Malden?
This may surprise you after our lengthy discussions of this poem, but this poem was written as a fill-in-the-blank poem. I don't have the original (it was published in a poetry magazine in the 60s), but I went ahead and blacked out a bunch of phrases for you to fill in. See how easy it really is! (The last line, by the way, was an attempt at sarcasm.)
