Ferlinghetti Memorial Supplement ~ That Fellow on the Boattrain

That Fellow On the Boattrain Who Insisted . . .

Narrated by Tony Dawson

Spain

THAT FELLOW ON THE BOATTRAIN WHO INSISTED… 

That fellow on the boatirain who insisted 

on playing blackjack 

had teeth that stuck out 

like lighthouses on a rocky coast 

but 

he had no eyes to see 

the dusk flash past 

horses in orchards 

noiselessly running 

bunches of birds 

thrown up 

and the butterflies of yesterday 

That flittered on 

my mind
