    1. I want to like Kaufman , and I sense Kerouac cribbed a lot of his spontaneity and onomatopoeic jabberwocky jazz meter from him Second April reads like one of Kerouac s stoned rants and Boms toward the end reminds me of the final portion of Big Sur, rhapsodizing the rhythms of the Pacific but taken to the streets but ultimately I feel like Kaufman just wants to impress me with washes of poetic language and not actually say anything concrete Not that it has to, and I certainly don t like the, say, [...]

    3. No matter how many times I read this collection, or really anything by Kaufman, I fall in love again He should be a better known Beat poet than he is, but his lack of fame has its own endearing quality.The music in Kaufman s work is stunning and the politics thought provoking The imagery and use of language always has me rereading and wishing that there was .


    4. Having lived in San Francisco in the 1970s, I would see Bob Kaufman every now and then on the streets of North Beach and at different events I love the title of this book and Kaufman s way with words.


    5. For all the time I spend reading and writing overtly political poetry, I always return to this surrealistic, playful, morose, amazing poet Kaufman was one of the Beats who never received the attention he deserved Didn t help he spent years in a Buddhist vow of silence Correct me if I m wrong, but I believe he may be only one of two Blacks from the beat generation to be published.


    6. I see hear this homeless man, shuffling the streets, following his own mutterings, he will not look me in the eye does not care to know me.


    7. What a trip Abomunist manifesto and following poems funnier than expected I love how imaginative his poems are, and how tight all of them come and go, never feeling drawn out or fading away Read it aloud and you can hear the music to the words A great collection of poetry, well worth the experience.


    8. Jazz poetry at its finest and I can feel where some other Beats licked their riffs off of In the Poems section, the music is all in the lines and the language so Kaufman doesn t have to throw his lines all over the page to affect musicality, he just lets them roll on their own beat and effect their own drones and tones Second April switches off into stanza sections set in newspaper style justified blocks of prose imagery that chronicles the speaker s stint in rehab The account is chilling but ne [...]


    9. this might be the real deal i don t think i can, nor would bob kaufman perhaps, suggest any comparison between himself and luis gongora the san francisco that exists now is actively trying to destroy a kind of street culture that just doesn t want what you want running between cars screaming his poems at commuters, constantly running in with the cops it s a mode of being that i don t want to fetishize but i also want to hold its significant refusal and its demand for possibilities that do seem c [...]


    10. Bob Kaufman was the prototypical beatnik A former merchant marine, Kaufman befriended beat lions such as Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsburg and, while he didn t produce as much published poetry as either lived a life perhaps beat These poems were written when he wasn t immersed in either of his two vows of silence, and they re largely appreciative odes to bebop jazz and related topics From LA to North Beach, with stops in New York, Kaufman s a poet worth perusing Life is a saxophone played by deat [...]


    11. Rating 3 1 2Introduction by Lawrence Ferlinghetti A lot of references to jazz and the Beats Some good material, but also some slides into gibberish and excessive weirdness Favorites Hart.Crane Song of the Broken Giraffe The Eyes Too Still Further Notes Dis and Re Garding Abomunism Jesus ChristMulberry eyed girls in black stockings,Smelling vaguely of mint jelly and last night s bongo drummer Bagel Shop Jazz I love him because his eyes leak Ginsberg Angry motives scrambling for seating space,Shak [...]


    12. Reading Kaufman was like reading the Beat poets for the first time again, but his was a voice that continued to sound, that was a bit distant from the party aspect of the movement Why he isn t as well known as Corso at least is beyond me.




    13. Read this sometime in university I don t remember too much other than the fact that it seemed to have been a good experience.


    14. Bob Kaufman can write Poetry The Second April chapter of verse you can play drums toA quick read, a well worthy read.
