Analysis and comments on Sphincter by Allen Ginsberg

Comment 2 of 2, added on March 23rd, 2011 at 4:03 AM.
good poem

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.
