The latest word is that Allen Ginsberg had a stroke or some other serious complication, following the news yesterday that he is dying of cancer.
Before this, I’d heard that he was back at home but having a rough time … and writing poems, meditating and meeting with friends. A guy named Sean wrote to me with a URL for an Allen Ginsberg Prayer Page. At this point it’s just a few words in black text on a dark orange background — which is as good a prayer as any other — and he says he’ll update it with news if and when there is more.
Life goes on.
