bill burroughs by robert mapplethorpe, 1981.
From a broadcast on WSB Radio, 1961, London: \”A Day in the Life of a Junkie\”. From Ubu Web: \”One of the most in-demand titles in the Sub Rosa catalogue, a collection of extraordinary cut-up voices recorded during the mid-60s in hotel rooms in Paris, New York, London, and beyond…\”
I feel like a junkie. I am hooked on devalued currency; to the act of making meaningless contributions to the flotsam and jetsam riding the ether out into space. Crash landing on a giant gas planet on the fringe of an astral belt.
My intention is to wean myself off this shit gradually. For better or worse, going cold turkey does not appear to be a realistic option.
Like the strapline goes: \”in space no one can hear you scream.\”
