May 10th. Thank God for the rain, which has helped wash the garbage and the
rain off the sidewalks. I’m workin' long hours now, six days a week.
Sometimes seven days a week. It’s a long hustle, but it keeps me real busy.
I can take in three, three fifty a week, sometimes even more if I do it off

All the animals come out at night. Buggers, queens, fairies, dopers, junkies.
Sick, venal. Someday a real rain will come that will wash all the scum off the
I go all over. I take people to the Bronx, Brooklyn, Harlem, I don’t care.
Don’t make no difference to me. It does to some. Some won’t even take spooks.

morning. Fifty pull-ups. From now on, it’ll be total organization.
Every muscle must be tight. The idea had been growing in my brain for some
time. True force. All the king’s men could not put it back together again
You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? Who the hell else are
you talkin' to? You talkin' to me? Well, I’m the only one here. Who do you
think you’re talkin' to? Oh, yeah? Huh
Listen you screwheads, here’s a man who would not take it anymore.
A man who stood up against the scum, the dogs, the filth. Someone who stood up
Now I see it clearly. My whole life has pointed in one direction.
I see that now. There never has been any choice for me
