Here's the actual entry from my book:
Today’s Kerouaction: On Courting
Whereas the beat generation – and especially the hippie generation it spawned – has a reputation for meaningless, casual sex, it would seem that the "king of the beats" advises that there is more to it than that. Granted, we might be talking about an uncommitted, "one-night stand," but even within that context we ought to attempt a soul-to-soul connection in addition to the physical. This may explain the pick-up line which is the subject of Day 37. Depending on the situation, of course, this line may be seen as merely a pick-up line, even if delivered with sincerity. Timing is important as well as delivery. Find your own way to get into “real straight talk about souls” when you are “courting” – either short-term or long-term. It will reap beat dividends, because you are after "IT" (see Day 85).
Write a beat love poem here. You never know when it might come in handy!
