Kerouac on Wild Form, Man, Wild Form


_What I'm beginning to discover now
is something beyond the novel
and beyond the arbitrary confines
of the story...into realms of
revealed Picture..._wild form_, man, wild form.
Wild form's the only form
holds what I have to say--
my mind is exploding to say something
about every image and every memory....
I have an irrational lust
to set down everything I know.

                          Jack Kerouac to John Clellon Holmes
