Jim Carroll, Person Who Died

Punk poet, Jim Carroll, has died at age 60. I hope he finds his friends.

In 1990 or '91 some friends and I went to see Jim Carroll read in Buffalo. The room was packed, and we sat on the floor at Carroll's feet. The nugget that stays with me from that reading is called "Sampling Nietzsche"

"What does not kill me, only serves to make me sleep until 3:30 the next afternoon."
