william s. burroughs lays down his last words on sex and death

Calico Jane the cat, named after Jane Bowles

    Thursday. This is November 14, 1996
    November 10, Calico was killed at 19th and Learnard. I heard about it the 12th from José. Tom had seen the cat by side of the road.
    In the empty spaces where the cat was, that hurt physically. Cat is part of me. Mornings since, I break into uncontrollable sobbing and crying when I remember [where] she used to be—sit—move, etc. No question of histrionics. It just happens.
    So dream remembered: Oh, it was also a cat. I wasn’t sure it could find its way.
