Allen Ginsberg and Gregory Corso’s 1989 interview/conversation continues from here – and concludes here
GC: This is nice, Burroughs as the sphinx.
GC: (When he came back from) the chateau in France..
AG No, he went off to the Museum of Natural History to begin with… this is the Metropolitan Museum of Art
GC: Yeah, not the Museum of Natural History.
AG: It’s the Egyptian wing
AG: But we went to look at the Mayan codices in the Museum of Natural History [Editorial note – some confusion here, there are only three codices in museums, in Dresden, Madrid, and Paris, (and only latterly in the 1970’s, too late for Allen to be referencing it, in Mexico). Perhaps he’s alluding to an early and mistaken visit New York’s American Museum of Natural History? Anyway, yes, the image is taken in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Egyptian wing]
GC: I love it
AG: They’re kidding each other!
GC: Yeah, he looks like Neal (Cassady) there very much
AG: Well look how he’s ga-ga- gagging for the camera He’s looking around, his eye is on the camera while Burroughs is bending over him with a kris or some sort of.. what kind of knife is that? dagger?- scimitar?
GC: The scimitar!
AG: Well that’s it. We’re out of, we’re out of tape.
GC: Well Allen, what do you mean? you covered up the sound! You’re not over with that one (points to second recorder), this one..
AG: I wonder if I covered up the sound.
GC: I think that’s gonna be the end of the ballgame.
