naked lunch is a book; not a work, not a hissing commentary.
its genius came in its fluidity.
if any of it was on purpose, it instantly loses its appeal.
God, I'm Tired.
\\\the door's not really a door
i've written this way. (the way naked lunch is written)
just vocabulary bleeding from my hands and mouth, coming together just barely. saying things you're jealous you hadn't thought of sooner.
you find 3 or 4 lines as cornerstones.
and you move on,
never removing a thing.
i know this style, is what i'm saying.
in this version, Terry Southern includes an introduction which claims that Burroughs' social, political, and ethical commentary
IS MORE INSTINCTIVE
just call it what it is.
an addict talking like an addict about addicts, addiction, and its implications while being addicted.
he just happens to have the right tools in his mind and his his mouth. word after word after word.
i've said this time and again about music. but with this book, it just makes sense:
instead of giving you this book, and asking you to read it, i'd rather just give you the emotions i felt while reading it.
i'd rather impart its impact onto you.
i guess this is pretention. surrounded by addicts.
