I found a clip of the actual memorial reading that inspired my poem Huncke. In fact, I can be seen in the video hoisting a pint as the reader on whom I base the character “Moses” approaches the stage. And the inspiration for The Poet Morton, a central character in the poem, is the second guy on the mic during the introductions. Note the films projected on the wall–this is an effect I try to capture at the beginning and end of the poem.
