Visiting Ginsberg’s grave it began to rain 

a refreshing drizzle that was walkable 

until we made the truck below 

by the Great Stupa

– now in my tent I think of Allen’s grave 

(which has some ashes 

more in Newark, New Jersey near his family)

– a new friend had asked 

“Do you want to be alone with him?”

“He’s not there,” I said, but happy nonetheless
