Don Allen

Once he took Richard Brautigan and I north out into the wine country
      circa 1964 when it was really empty and spring blossoms were on the trees

He'd point and Richard and I would run out from the car
     and hack away at all the branches we could find and finally
          the car was all filled up

When he dropped us off in the city
        He took just one very shapely branch
            & left us on the sidewalk

   with this huge mound
        of drooping blossoms and greenery
           and drove off into the night
