Bill gets picked up and it soon becomes apparent that a conviction is imminent. What was jamming Bill up was the Harrison Act of It was a tax meant to regulate the market, but was interpreted by the law as a way to prohibit the sale of opiates. Due to stress or just having the ready access to drugs soon has him becoming a full time junky.
When he is on junk his sex drive is diminished, but when he is off the junk his libido becomes as all consuming as getting his next fix. He was not queer, and I gave him money; always the same amount, twenty pesos.
He insisted on sweeping the apartment out whenever he spent the night there. Once I connected with Angelo, I did not go back to the Chimu. Mexico or stateside, queer bars brought me down.
What I really dig is chicks. I get a kick out of taking a proud chick and breaking her spirit, making her see she is just an animal. Vintage Burroughs.

Allen Ginsberg took William under his wing? I think that statement is opinion and seems inconsistent with much of the history I have encountered when learning about William S. Burroughs, but I just read it on the net, so it must be true.
Ginsberg did no such thing. We are a sinking ship … going down. WOW Mark you must be an eternal optimist. You two must have hung around both of these guys and the beat scene to have such intimate knowledge of Ginsberg and Burroughs relationship.
Maybe you guys can post those cool stories here for all us peons to enjoy!
That would be so awesome. Burroughs would be thrilled with either reactions because that is what the book is about, creating a reaction. So given the success of my second reading of Naked Lunch I decided to read Burroughs first published work Junky British title or Junkie American title.
Burroughs insisted for a long time in calling the book Junk, but the publisher refused to put that label on the book believing that the American public might actually believe it to be just that Allen Ginsberg is the reason the book even exists.

Viscera and cells, galvanized into a loathsome insect-like activity, seemed on the point of breaking through the surface. His face was blurred, unrecognizable, at the same time shrunken and tumescent. We all know someone odd, someone living an alternative bohemian lifestyle, someone floating in a constant haze of pharmaceutical diversion, but most of us know maybe one or two people that would fit that definition.
