Fun for a while, but after a while it feels kind of tacky in a proto-New Age sort of way. Best poem: "Sociability is a big smile, and a big smile is nothing but teeth. Rest and be kind." ( )

Jack Kerouac died suddenly in 1969 at the age of 47.
First words
Did I create that sky? Yes, for, if it was anything other than a conception in my mind I wouldn't have said "Sky" -- That is why I am the golden eternity.
Sociability is a big smile, and a big smile is nothing but teeth. Rest and be kind.
