Finally I'm an Old Whore
Dreamed Jan./Feb. 1953 by Jack Kerouac
FINALLY I'M AN OLD WHORE waiting in my bed, sexless, knowing the only time I'll wake up is when young boys are brought to me---instead of the usual round of old ladies---apparently I'm a male---I wake up surprised---there is no scene, just my bed, me in it, 11 o'clock Sunday morning---dismal like the 'beat brother' on the little gray street with the house, but my sister's not around, and from a horrible tired-out brother I've turned in my shame into a Silly Dylan Thomas old whore... old whore alcoholic and told everybody so... a silly Jack Kerouac whore with that same old tired old gasafaycagoo.
