Famous People

It’s night time in the big city

There’s a new coffee place on the corner

I hope somebody has change for a dollar

Books and Poems

  • I’d rather be thin than famous
    I don’t wanna be fat
    And a woman throws me outta bed
    callin me Gordo
    And every time I bend
    to pickup my suspenders
    from the davenport floor
    I explode loud, huge grunt-o
    and disgust everyone in the familio

    I’d rather be thin than famous
    But I’m fat

    Paste that in your Broadway show.

    -- Jack Kerouac
