“The program for this evening

is not new. You have seen

This entertainment thru & thru. 

You’ve seen your birth, your

life & death; you might recall

all of the rest — (did you 

have a good world when you

died?) — enough to base

a movie on?”




A passage from Section II of “An American Prayer” by Jim Morrison, circa 1970.
