Gysin then? Some problems also cough

AAANYway .... the cut ups ..... did you find them sort of comforting as stations in life? To return to in times gone by. ?
Ahem. They are so rich in imagery. Perversely only Kafka equals him in this for me.
And that voice. The bored gravitas of Zeus on the crapper ooh im getting carried away...

Alcohol helped. The last thing I did was a poem called..The Divine Lord Jason, the Ejaculating Jesus of the True Believers Cathedral...wants your soul. I got crucified at the end of it whilst my mate's band played the riff to I wanna be your Dog endlessly until the room emptied. As part of the performance I carried the 7 foot cross 2 miles through town to the gig. Other than abuse from earlż drinkers, the highlight of the walk was a little kid who said..you look a bit cross mate!

Oh and some goon pulled a knife on me when I was tied to the cross as he was offended. Luckily a couple of friends jumped on him before I went the way of Jesus.

Ah, Gysin, I used to have a dream machine, never really worked for me other than look pretty in a dark room.

Oddly James Ellroy and Herman Hesse are the only other writers to have an impact on me.

It is brilliant, one of my favourite books by Burroughs.

I love the covers on both at least, it's a shame they didn't have some more in there. I've got a huge stack of books to get through, but I plan on reading Frisk then one of these two as soon as possible. I also want to go back to Naked Lunch, I was enjoying it last time I tried but felt it was a little oppressive at the time. I know what to expect the second time around.
