"Two Gods from New God" a work of Beat poetry by Zack Pat Shak


Hey there, it's Jeremy Kellerman!

Sorry it's been so long since my last post, but it's been kuh-razy 'round ol' Ann Arbor!

I've been in and out of the hospital and in and out of the studio and sometimes in one and out the other, like the way information passes through my ears, LOL!

I hope to begin posting here again as soon as possible, but in the mean time, here's a poem by my old friend and fellow Michigan genius/legend, the Beat poet Zack Pat Shak. Enjoy the depth!

"Two Gods from New God"

"where one road ends
Another begins
and quickly leads to the edge
thousands of screaming souls
return to the place from which
They Started.

I dreamed a Dream far too great
for this world
and so the World forgot the Dream
and forgot Me
and I, then, forgot Myself.

Memory comes and goes
and Returns and Departs
and Returns again
with the Tides
inconstant, ever-changing, liquid
much the same as Dream.

if you were I
I were you
we would not be standing here

and how to break the barrier
of Otherness
that insufferable Gulf
between Us
between You and I
and who
we might be
