This living hand, now warm and capableOf earnest grasping, would, if it were coldAnd in the icy silence of the tomb,So haunt thy days and chill thy dreaming nightsThat thou would wish thine own heart dry of bloodSo in my veins red life might stream again,And thou be conscience-calm’d–see here it is–I hold it towards you.
(John Keats, David Foster Wallace)
Happy Birthday to the cultural revolutionist, Abbie Hoffman!
For this occasion I included the entire book cover - I highly recommend this autobiography if you like learning about interesting, multidimensional, wild human beings who truly changed and influenced their generation.
