Daniel Radcliffe Daring as Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings

This post is for those who like Daniel Radcliffe and poems about sex.

Thanks to Daniel Radcliffe and his brave performance as the openly gay and celebrated 20th century poet Allen Ginsberg in the movie Kiss Your Darlings, I ended up reading poetry on a Friday night!

Just read this brazen excerpt from his award-winning poem, Howl, and I can't believe it was written in 1955!  It actually made me blush!  

The 'who' here refers to "the best minds of my generation"  and "angelheaded hipsters".

"who let themselves be fucked in the ass by saintly motorcyclists, and screamed with joy,

who blew and were blown by those human seraphim, the sailors, caresses of Atlantic and Caribbean love,

who balled in the morning in the evenings in rosegardens and the grass of public parks and cemeteries scattering their semen freely to whomever come who may,

who hiccuped endlessly trying to giggle but wound up with a sob behind a partition in a Turkish Bath when the blond & naked angel came to pierce them with a sword,

who lost their loveboys to the three old shrews of fate the one eyed shrew of the heterosexual dollar the one eyed shrew that winks out of the womb and the one eyed shrew that does nothing but sit on her ass and snip the intellectual golden threads of the craftsman’s loom"

Now that's how someone should passionately write poems about sex!
