Should hurt me so.

I am hurt
I am scared
I want to live

This is typical Kerouac...rambling, anxious, stark, sensual...full of unexplained imagery. I am only a fan of stream of consciousness writing when it has a location and a destination. Words on a page do not necessarily poetry make!

Very much a street poem of New York City, quite pessimistic. Also visionary in some lines, 'For no church told me/ No guru holds me/ Just stone of New York'.
