In April 1999, friends of the Poetry Project of New York’s St. Mark’s Church planted a Kousa Dogwood tree in its garden in the memory of Allen Ginsberg, who was born on this day in 1926. The group has a long tradition of commemorating writers with flowering trees, including Ted Berrigan, Michael Scholnick, Frank O’Hara, W. H. Auden, and Paul Blackburn.

    Creepy timing, a minute before I saw this I was talking about Ginsberg references in movies with my friend Firefly.
