A Recollection of Harlan

Postby franklin » Fri Nov 04, 2005 9:34 pm

I remember quite a while ago I read an interview with Harlan and he was talking about the time he was in a protest when this cop started to bounce a pregnant woman off of his knight stick and a chainlink fence. Across her stomach. And this so enraged him that he punched the cop in the middle of his riot visor and Harlan's fist went right through it and smacked the cop in his pudgy face. There were also photographs of his home, with all the cool objects de arts. I remember a lot of Jean Genet books.

I always admired him for that.
To offer an alternative to life in all it's forms constitutes a permanent opposition, a permanent recourse to life - this is the poets highest mission on this earth.
