A Supermarket in California Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG

"A Supermarket in California" doesn't have too much sex in it, but there is some innuendo. Walt Whitman casts some saucy glances and asks some suggestive questions at the grocery boys, but that's about it. If you're looking for some explicit poetry by Ginsberg (and there's certainly a lot of it out there), we suggest that you start with Howl.
