Jack Kerouac

(12 March 1922 - 21 October 1969 / Lowell, Massachusetts)

149th Chorus


I keep falling in love
with my mother,
I dont want to hurt her
-Of all people to hurt.

Every time I see her
she's grown older
But her uniform always
amazes me
For its Dutch simplicity
And the Doll she is,
The doll-like way
she stands
Bowlegged in my dreams,
Waiting to serve me.

And I am only an Apache
Smoking Hashi
In old Cabashy
By the Lamp.

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
