    ...and it just came to mind...the short Kerouac poem that I've been thinking of- the title is either Birds Sing or A Bird Sings. This is a magnificent series, Richard. (Report)Reply

    You've captured Kerouac's guilt and aspirations....in two brilliant lines. Well done, Richard! (Report)Reply

    Carl, I think Jack would have sacrificed his own life for Gerard. Thank you for very positive response.
