Plymell: WICHITA VORTEX SUTRA/ OLD GIRLFRIENDS/ DYLAN

I presume the poem you're talking about is 'Wichita Vortex Sutra'? Just wondering for my own curiosity. I think it is quite a good poem, though lacking a centre and maybe too much like a lost Canto by Pound...He does seem to think Kansas typified the mindset that got America into Vietnam, doesn't he? ~ Bruce, email to Charles Plymell

Yeah, it was the sutra that people regard as his third best. I will find some live lines in any Pound Canto. The lines die like a flat tire in the sutra. Allen had hounded me to edit his T.V. Baby poem of which I thought the only good lines was the title. I threw out whole chucks and he was startled. He took it back and had my mother-in law publish it! I was thinking last night the part where I took Allen down to see Monk on my Motorcylce isn't in the book. That was the most interesting to me because we were composing spontaneous poetry along the way from bits and pieces of signs, etc. I guess it's not included because it took a while for Monk to remember Allen. I was also thinking what girfriend I would be "paranoid" over as stated in the text. We had shared a girl that Allen & Peter had known in N.Y , I shared with Neal. And the girl who brought the lp Blowin in the Wind, that Allen seemed to have no reaction to, was an old girlfriend. Then the one I picked up on the corner of Castro and Market and launched her into London Times fame as Warhol's most beautiful, later poached by sycophant Miles. Then there was the one upstairs, on and on. After all it was the Sexual Freedom period. We all went to nude beach down by Baez (that trip isn't in the book?) and gathered a party for the night. And by the way, the flat was mine and Allen was pretty desperate for him and Neal to have a place. In the book it said I had a room, actually, two in which the beats met the hippes in a famous party when Allen returned from India though the hippies weren't named yet. But I guess I should be paranoid that the biggest queer in San Francisco would steal my girl!
