Where You From?

I’ve more
blues songs
in me
than I
realized

Near the end of the book now. They’ve thrown a three day party at the house for Japhy’s going away, but he and Ray broke away and went hiking into the hills. Japhy is known for cooking from very simple ingredients. Roy (Kerouac) is getting drunk too often and has no intention to stop; we see where that gets him later, outside the story.

“when it
comes to caring
you’ll find me
elsewhere”

little
rabbit child
thump thumps his
foot in
disapproval

jackass
of a snickering
man
laughs with
his friends
judging
from afar
but
not
getting it right

so the
leaves shuffle
but are
mostly out
of work

now that
the wind is gone

all
heat blazes

soon

confused expressions
and looks
weary
weak
damned

yes,
these people are fucked

doomed to
toil under
these
conditions
forever and ever

do you wanna say
anything?

yeah, I’ll
get up and say something

beers later
I am exuberant

I admit that
sometimes I feel
sorry for myself
that I’m human
that I have these flaws
and
call you a robot
a cyborg
for you not fessing up
you got
your weaknesses
so let just
a few people
know sometimes

but for christ
don’t paint
the town

it is
a nice breeze
out on the Ortho
sidewalk
but fuck the place
and
pretty much fuck
sitting here
I’m all done

Om on the page
is like
oh man
oh damn
goddamn
son of sam
last man
standing
branded
tattooed
kidnapped
an Into Another show
Underdog
Token Entry
Chain of Strength
Judge
GB

Om to page
earth to BGK
come back soon
even
in DC they
were like
“where you from?”

Day 31:

the last

coming down
the other
side of
the mountain

I
tried and tried

mostly
a struggle
against
my own
ignorance

and
some
breakthroughs

I took
garbage
to the cans
in the alley
