The Dead Speak


I really like the remembrance of Jim Carroll printed at The Millions. It echoes many of my sentiments.

Jim Carroll was quoted as saying: “Conscience is no more than the dead speaking to us.” I don’t doubt I’ll hear him speak to me at times. His voice will be the pang of conscience I feel as I recall the ideals I held when my romance with New York and with poetry itself was still new.

Safe travels.
