#queervsgay / #queernotgay / #queer / #queerauthor / #writer / #addict / #outlaw William S. Burroughs
"Who, or perhaps what, was Burroughs? He was a junkie for forty years by his own admission. He was a bug exterminator. He cut the top of his little finger off, claiming it was a Native American initiation rite. He studied at Harvard. He spent time in a series of hellhole prisons and psychiatric wards. He was queer, a term he preferred to gay (he loathed any suggestion of camp). He made arthouse films with Anthony Balch in the Sixties. He ventured off into the Amazonian rainforest to try the hallucinogen yage. He collaborated with Kurt Cobain on The 'Priest' They Called Him. He tried to set up a farm in the Rio Grande valley. He once put a hex on Truman Capote. He'd lived in Nazi Germany and had saved the life of a Jewish lady, Ilse Klapper, by marrying and bringing her to the US. He shot and killed his wife Joan Vollmer at a party whilst drunkenly playing their 'William Tell act'. He worked with Tom Waits and Robert Wilson on the Expressionist musical The Black Rider. He appeared in Gus Van Sant's film Drugstore Cowboy. He collaborated with the artist Malcolm McNeill on Ah Pook Is Here, which was later made into a short film by Philip Hunt. He shilled for Nike. He released a spoken word album Call Me Burroughs in France in the summer of 1965. He was a member of the NRA who kept a loaded gun under his pillow, reputedly for fear of attack from, as he put it, ‘lesbians'. He lived in exile in Mexico, Paris, London and Tangiers. As an afterthought, he also wrote some books."

recent obsession: the work of Harry S. Crews
"I never wanted to be well-rounded. I do not admire well-rounded people nor their work. So far as I can see, nothing good in the world has ever been done by well-rounded people. The good work is done by people with jagged, broken edges, because those edges cut things and leave an imprint, a design."

— Harry Crews, † R.I.P †


[ Tattoo/text on his arm, photo attached, is an excerpt from E. E. Cummings' poem "Buffalo Bill" :

"how do you like your blueeyed boy
Mister Death?" ]
