Hunter S. Thompson
I never knew Hunter S. Thompson,
but my girlfriend did.
When she lived in Aspen
they got high together.
She tells me he was pathetically funny,
hugely intelligent, amazingly crazy,
and had more books in his kitchen
than she had ever seen before.
I wish that I had known her
when she knew Hunter S. Thompson.
Then I would have been able write something
about knowing this gonzo writer myself.
is as close to knowing Hunter S. Thompson
as I will ever get.
He is gone now,
for reasons that only Hunter S. Thompson
will ever know. - dbA
