"First Thought, Best Thought"
Allen Ginsberg's "First thought, best thought. " dictum doesn't work for me. I'm a compulsive editor and reviser." I've already fiddled with the Runaways post three times since I published it. (Jeeze is this guy going to do this for every post?). Hope not. I'm betting once I acclimate to cyberspeed I'll let things fly. Still, I wish I had an old fashioned copy editor.
I'm just not a ZEN SINGLE DECISIVE BRUSH STROKE OF CLARITY sort of guy.
I'm more a Mesopotamian prophet -- yanking entrails from a goat, juggling them about, before making absurd proclamations, when it's obvious to everybody else; what I have is a handful of reeking goat guts.
