it's funny.
because this is
where i grew up.






watch out!





i miss
city lights




There are going to be times
when we can't wait for somebody.


Now, you're either
on the bus or off the bus.


If you're on the bus,
and you get left behind,
then you'll find it again.


If you're off the bus in the first place
— then it won't make a damn.




Tom Wolfe
The Electric Kool-Aid
Acid Test
(1968)





ps: the use of the words
anglo & voluptuous



and did you read?
the school girl was cast
as an alley cat in a play
before running away.



i think that's pretty
damn funny &
ironic.

They certainly seemed fixated on the "buxom" nature of the girl. As if that made her more likely to stray over to the dark side????

Just read a from a book of haikus by Kerouac this morning and was reminded once again how great the beats really were - what an amazing period of self-discovery. So glad the Lowell lass ran in the right direction!

Curious this attraction to the Beats--they were lousy poets and novelists in general, and with the exeception of a work here or there, they left nothing behind worthwhile except perhaps a scruffy notion of libertinism which was co-opted by the "hippies" who took it to another mass level...
