Jack Kerouac in NYC (1959)

I learned a world from each / one whom I loved

No love

No compassion

No intelligence

No beauty

No humility

Twenty-seven years is enough

Mother – too late – years of meanness – I’m sorry

Daddy – What happened?

Allen – I’m sorry

Peter – Holy Rose Youth

Betty – Such womanly bravery

Keith – Thank you

Joyce – So girl beautiful

Howard – Baby take care

Leo – Open the windows and Shalom

Carol – Let it happen

Let me out now please –

Please let me in

—believed to be Elise Cowen’s last poem before her 1962 suicide (via fuckyeahbeatniks)

Ginsberg and Kerouac

My schizoid side is the Raskolnikov-Dedalus-George Webber… side, the bent and brooding figure sneering at a world of mediocrities… My normal counterpart, the one you’re familiar with, is the halfback-whoremaster-alemate-scullion-jitterbug-jazzcritic side, the side in me which requires a broad, rugged America.
