POEM OF THE DAY "Pull My Daisy II" by Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Neal Cassady

This poem in the second version in a series of 3 mutations of the original "Fie My Fum" written by Kerouac.  In this version, apparently scribed in 1950, Kerouac, Ginsberg, and the legendary Cassady (the main character of On The Road and Visions of Cody) playfully add versus and lines to give the irreverent stamp of the "Beat Generation" to it.

Compare this version to the original, which is included on this blog, several posts down.  Tomorrow you can see the 1961 transition from this hybrid to the final lyrical version, very nice.

This series of poems can be found in "Scattered Poems" by Jack Kerouac - a highly recommended collection which you can purchase a the bottom of this post!

Pull My Daisy

By Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Neal Cassady

Pull my daisy
tip my cup
all my doors are open
Cut my thoughts
for coconuts
all my eggs are broken
Jack my Arden
gate my shades
woe my road is spoken
Silk my garden
rose my days
now my prayers awaken

Bone my shadow
dove my dream
start my halo bleeding
Milk my mind &
make me cream
drink me when you're ready
Hop my heart on
harp my height
seraphs hold me steady
Hip my angel
hype my light
lay it on the needy

Heal the raindrop
sow the eye
bustmy dust again
Woe the worm
work the wise
dig my spade the same
Stop the hoax
what's the hex
where's the wake
how's the hicks
take my golden beam

Rob my locker
lick my rocks
leap my cock in school
Rack my lacks
lark my looks
jump right up my hole
Whore my door
beat my boor
eat my snake of fool
Craze my hair
bare my poor
asshole shorn of wool

say my oops
ope my shell
Bite my naked nut
Roll my bones
ring my bell
call my worm to sup
Pope my parts
Pop my pot
raise my daisy up
Poke my pap
pit my plum
let my gap be shut
