new kerouac-inspired pome in _the crank_

this notice is coming a little late, as i’ve been stepping back from online presence somewhat. but here goes:

on my last trip to california in july ’22, i was reading kerouac again. on the extra day we gained from a cancelled flight, we were in a little cafe near haight-ashbury, and a pome made its way onto paper. kerouac’s influence is strong, as was the macchiato.

the crank mag has graciously published it in their latest issue, available here. tho note that the cover has explicit (male) nudity, in case you’re sensitive to such material.
