April 22

Thoughts Before Pissing Now that we know all aobut Reality, let's forget about it --its solitude, its labor (on the railroad), its loneliness its automobiles on the barren streets and the ever faster eclipse of the years Last night I dreamed an old lover welcomed me back with shining eyes and warm kisses arms round my shoulder then lay down with me embraced on his couch I'm reading the journals of Allen Ginsberg because I have often heard that he never ever revised but I also knew he had. His "not revising" is one of those odd myths that attaches itself to an icon and contrarian evidence goes ignored. Still, it's nice to read these rough drafts and see inklings of his process.
