A Prayer Poem

by Travis Mateer

This week’s episode is a recording I made last week of a longer poem I wrote back in December. I decided to share it after seeing a tweet about the need for a generational update of Ginsberg’s poem, Howl.

Now, I’m not arrogant enough to be making the claim that’s what this poem is, partly because I have a MUCH DIFFERENT perspective on what the beatniks actually contributed to our culture than many artists who still venerate that time period.

I am, however, confident enough in my poetic skills to make the claim that my poetry is a unique documentation of this crazy time period we are experiencing.

So take it for what it’s worth.
