well, i think Ginsberg wants to talk about his experience as a homosexual. Thus, he is very proud of what he was doing as a gay and i beleive he is sad because his asshole is not nice as it was in childhood. So, the poet wishes that his asshole would be as before. Plus, i think he feels sorry because people are not homosexual because they are afraid if AIDS. However, for him he is still eager to be homosexual even if AIDS will lead to his death.

I don't know anything about Ginsberg yet. I'll have to read about him, but it appears he was gay??? If this is autobiographical, then not too bad, ok I guess, but if he wrote thise outside of himself, then awesome. It seems to me autobiographical works are easier.
