Bashing Burroughs

Whatever the day may hold, no worries, I’ll get by no matter what is revealed. Sucked in and unamused, it’s nice to take a break from the institution. Age is fast becoming irrelevant, and I figure I’ll get there when I get there.

I can’t wait to get out of here and go somewhere else. I can’t wait to come to an end to start another beginning. I can’t wait to meet you, where ever or whoever you are.

Burroughs killed his wife and became a famous writer. I tried reading two of his books, Naked Lunch and Junkie. Couldn’t get through either one. I’ve come to the conclusion, that, although I love the Beats, I am not a Burroughs fan. Perhaps I’ve overlooked his talent, but I am not impressed by his writing or who he was as a human being.
