Oṃ Maṇi Padme Boom: Caroline Petters’ ›Hum Bom‹!

The poem Hūṃ Bom! by Allen Ginsberg, written in 1971 and published a year later in the collection The Fall of America, is a famous example of the poet’s anti-war poetry. Photographer Caroline Petters uploaded her poetry video based on the first part of Ginsberg’s poem under the title Hum Bom! forty years after the original poem, in 2011, on the video platform Vimeo.
