Diane Di Prima, No Problem

 
 
 
 
 
absence of children no problem 

heat no problem 

dark no problem 

arnica scattered in nylon rug no problem 

ashes in bowl of bleached bone & juniper berries no problem 

lost Satie tape no problem 

loss of temper no problem 

arrogance no problem 

boxes of empt}' beer cans & wine bottles no problem 

thousands of styrofoam cups no problem 

Gregory Corso no problem 

Allen Ginsberg no problem 

Diane di Prima no problem 

Anne Waldman's veins no problem 

Dick Gallup's birthday no problem 

Joanne Kyger's peyote & rum no problem 

wine no problem 

coca-cola no problem 

getting it on in the wet grass no problem 

running out of toilet paper no problem 

decimation of pennyroyal no problem 

destruction of hair clasp no problem 

paranoia no problem 

claustrophobia no problem 

growing up on Brooklyn streets no problem 

growing up in Tibet no problem 

growing up in Chicano Texas no problem 

bellydancing certainly no problem 

figuring it all out no problem 

giving it all up no problem 

giving it all away no problem 

devouring everything in sight no problem 




what else in Allen's refrigerator? 
what else in Anne's cupboard? 
what do you know that you 
haven't told me yet? 
no problem. no problem. no problem. 

staying another day no problem 
getting out of town no problem 
telling the truth, almost no problem 

easy to stay awake 

easy to go to sleep 

easy to sing the blues 

easy to chant sutras 
what's all the fuss about? 

it decomposes - no problem 
we pack it in boxes - no problem 
we swallow it with water, lock it in the trunk, 
make a quick getaway. NO PROBLEM.
