Fuckhead says...

'Georgie and I had a terrific time driving around. For a while the day was clear and peaceful. It was one of the moments you stay in, to hell with the troubles of before and after. The sky is blue and the dead are coming back. Later in the afternoon, with sad recognition, the county fair bares its breasts. A champion of the drug LSD, a very famous guru of the love generation, is being interviewed amid a TV crew off to the left of the poultry cages. His eyeballs look like he bought them in a joke shop. It doesn't occur to me, as I pity this extraterrestial, that in my life I've taken as much as he has.'

- Fuckhead ('Emergency', Jesus' Son, Denis Johnson, 1992)
