Walking Stiff Blues (Criteria)

Ed White suggested to Jack Kerouac: "Why don't you just sketch in the streets like a painter but with words?"
  1. I'm going to write a handful of improvised 3-line poems (not haiku) each day for 30 days.
  2. I'm not going to edit them.
  3. Each day, I'll pick one and post it.
  4. Each poem will be written within a specific place/time of my day.


  1. These are going well and I do enjoy them. It's a great way to show how NYC as the multiverse that it is.

    Blues? I guess it's all perspective. Seems to be a lot of life you're reflecting. Vomit and all.

  2. Thanks, Sundance.

    Yeah, it's a spin off of Kerouac's Mexico City Blues. I thought I'd give a nod to him.
