Benefit to reading in Cherry Valley, NY? You just might meet Charles Plymell

Benefit to reading in Cherry Valley? You just might have Charles Plymell drop in for a listen and he just might ask you to his home for tea afterwords and you just might go and hear story after incredible story that makes your realize you have done nothing, absolutely nothing with your amazing life. And you won’t care. Because Charles did and still is.

In London by Charles Plymell

In London in a very neat
and sensible flat,
lives the one true genius
of contemporary American prose.

More like a poet
he veers and speaks both
naturally and subliminally,
Or more like a medium
he chats pleasantly
from a space apart,
or from a chamber
of spirits disguised
in a everyday world.

A tall man, slightly stooped
from the weight of all
the combinations and formulas
of all possible plots,

Mr. Burroughs rises
and leans against the window ledge
…could have been a St. Louis
merchant or farmer
about to speculate on the weather.

“Those birds,” he says, gesturing out
the window to a flock that caught his fancy,
“in mornings they fly one way
and in the evenings they
fly back the other way.”

And with that he reached for his hat
and we went to the local pub for brandy.

–June 1968

(from Neon Poems, 1970)
