    Not interesting enough to dichotomize him, but from a few quotes I've looked up I'd peg him as ENFj-Fe sp/sx. Plentiful tragic imagery in what he writes, and it's giving me flashbacks of Jadae's posts.

    - Follow your inner moonlight; don't hide the madness.

    - I don't think there is any truth. There are only points of view.

    - we're all golden sunflowers inside.

    - I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of the night.

    - who can live with this Consciousness and not wake frightened at sunrise?

    - Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    - Whoever controls the media, the images, controls the culture.

    - America I've given you all and now I'm nothing.

    - If I had a soul I sold it
    for pretty words
    If I had a body I used
    it up spurting my essence

    Allen Ginsberg warns you
    dont follow my path
    to extinction
    This poem by him is a very good example of how sp/sx's are attuned to the 'underbelly' of human experience:

    Forty feet long sixty feet high hotel
    Covered with old gray for buzzing flies
    Eye like mango flowing orange pus
    Ears Durga people vomiting in their sleep
    Got huge legs a dozen buses move inside Calcutta
    Swallowing mouthfuls of dead rats
    Mangy dogs bark out of a thousand breasts
    Garbage pouring from its ass behind alleys
    Always pissing yellow Hooghly water
    Bellybutton melted Chinatown brown puddles
    Coughing lungs Sound going down the sewer
    Nose smell a big gray Bidi
    Heart bumping and crashing over tramcar tracks
    Covered with a hat of cloudy iron
    Suffering water buffalo head lowered
    To pull the huge cart of year uphill

    an ILI is not going to tell you that you're a "golden sunflower on the inside"

    here's a somewhat better recording of him
