Gregory Corso, Allen Ginsberg conversation continues from – here
AG: It (photography) is also part of my whole poetic activity.
GC: There you go. So you got something aside, from doing that. I (don’t) understand why I never jumped in a game like that. I can draw well, I can paint well.
AG: Well, I have music too… like, now that I’m gigging. I can do a bunch of gigs now and can do it.
GC: Yeah, I never went.. I.. How do I get into you guys’ rackets, man?
AG: Well, you wanna sing? You’ve got a gravel-voice, you can sing.
GC: Nah, fuck the voice, I can paint (like a dog)
AG: Painting… Why don’t you get your paintings together and have a show?
GC: That’s what I’m saying.
AG; Did you have a show, when we had that show at Jack Tilton Gallery – Poet-Painters – Did you have anything there?
AG: Well, you just got to get your materials together.
GC: I know. Allen.
AG: Because you’re a really good painter
GC: Yes I’m…
AG: I have some of your paintings.
GC: But you guys can do it, man, you and Burroughs can get up there, you old farts, man, and sell your paintings and photographs. What about poor Gregory?
AG: You should be.. You should be able to.
GC Ha ha!
AG: All you’ve got to do… But you’ve got to be able to get yourself together.
GC: I’ve got to get myself together to do it!
