“The only people for me are
the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be
saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn
or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow
roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle
you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!”-Jack Kerouac


The white curtains draw back
To reveal the hidden golden sun,
At perfect contrast with the emerald
That supports the gilded disc.

The pure, unspoiled white
Is ruffled by the warm wind
And torn from the jade anchor
That supports the silken blossom.

The white sordid, the gold fades,
Eventually becoming a yellowed parchment.
The beauty, the unbridled wonder,
Remains.
