  • POEM: In Vain by Jack Kerouac (11/29/2014 7:27:00 PM)

    This must've been written when he was going through one of his depressions. Anyone with depression knows everything seems to be in vain and bleakly hopeless. I think this is bit self indulgent for Jack and I'm pleased to be able to read what he was thinking at a dark time. It's as if he doesn't care whether or not someone else reads this. It's all for him all his own thoughts in writing.

  • POEM: Hitchhiker by Jack Kerouac (11/29/2014 7:17:00 PM)

    Maybe Jack imagined up this kind of scenario every time he hitchhiked himself. Maybe he wore a funny looking coat and when someone slowed down had a brief flash of story. Some men jumping out of a beat up truck and advancing on him. Jack traveled all over the states and saw many different people some insane no doubt, others plain cruel. These could've been legitimate thoughts he had. Probably short lived as the driver revealed himself to be friendly and harmless. Short lived or not, a thought, a story, is still very much real and a source of inspiration.

  • POEM: How To Meditate by Jack Kerouac (11/29/2014 6:38:00 PM)

    I wonder if Jack ever truly meditated. He describes it well. However I don't believe that he was devout in his meditation. Maybe if he did manage to fall into the practice completely he would have had strength to stray from the bottle. Or maybe he would've ignored the part about moderation. This is making me think pointlessly. He's dead and gone and I will appreciate his work.
