Crucial Document Unsealed

Here is a YouTube clip of the actual Herbert Huncke memorial. The reader, Stewart Meyer, does not figure personally or figuratively in the poem, but his presentation gave me some direction in Cantos One, Three, and Four. The host who introduces him, David Lawton, does not escape characterization in Huncke, and there is a brief glimpse of our narrator here trying to hold on to a pint of Guinness as the camera follows Meyer to the stage. The video presentation, projected against the wall and the crowd, is attributed to David Schmidlapp. It features prominently at the opening and close of the poem. Be there.
