stevesilberman: Similar but more obscure: I once saw a signed copy of Jack Kerouac's "On the Road" in a used bookstore. The owner straight-up told me it was a forgery by Beat poet Gregory Corso, who had a little hustle going forging Kerouac's signature.

venepoetics: In the new San Francisco poetry magazine CASTLE GRAYSKULL there’s a poem by Gregory Corso (c. late 1990s), from his upcoming posthumous collection The Golden Dot (New Directions), that surprises me with its plain-spoken & humble language, a radical shift in style for his poetry.

richardpgeer: Gregory Corso told us a poet should have a 1,2,4&10 liner for all occasions, which I remembered on a late night in Paris tossing a pebble in the window of Shakespeare&Co., seeking a warm place to stay. They put up Ethan Hawke once, but I was not so lucky, maybe cuz of the hour

zaharaesque: I'm a poet, I'm life. You're an editor, you're death. Proclaimed Gregory Corso to someone in the White Horse tavern - who shortly commenced punching him through the door and across the sidewalk. (My favourite anecdote from David Markson's, The Last Novel)

venepoetics: I missed a reading by Gregory Corso & Herbert Huncke at St. Mark’s Church, wish I’d gone. The only concert I saw that year was Sonic Youth at a theater in midtown, but I walked and took the train all over the city, recall Central Park covered in snow during the blizzard of 1996.

venepoetics: Gregory Corso’s posthumous poetry collection coming out from New Directions, The Golden Dot, will be amazing. I bought his selected poems Mindfield (1989) at Three Birds Bookstore in Ybor City sometime in 1990, a luminous book.

RiffTap: Because sooner or later it will all go sour, the 2 of you whipped by the sport of high-ball & boogie, that don’t stop till you get enough rhythm reduced to a spot on the tongue. Stupor, Terrance Hayes (kinda like Gregory Corso)

ADASpota: Gregory Corso - poet, juvenile delinquent, dandy, radio thief, sullen and broody scribbler in bars. The man Allen Ginsburg dubbed "A Beat Christ-boy". I learned life were no dream I learned truth deceived Man is not God Life is a century Death an instant

You tell me, doubt is Devil-born.
I know not: one indeed I knew

But ever strove to make it true:
