is there any other way

Posted to WritersAndGenres




is there any other way to truly experience
kerouac
than to binge
the pace of the language
doesnt allow for breaks
but when did he breathe
sleep
except to dream
then to wake and transcribe

the frantic nature
of the man is
pure
genius
and to
read as such is to honor
his art

have read almost everything
i can find here
in canada, me too a french
canadian with limited
knowledge of 'joual"
but have witnessed
the roman catholic mother figure
way too close

i too found big sur as a
hidden jewel
but desolation angels
is a masterpiece

it always calls me back

maybe soon my road
will take me there

i would die a
happy man
counting railroad
tracks freezing
stumbling mumbling
to myself
