Philippa Fallon performs the nihilistic beat poem ‘High School Drag’ aka ‘The Big Switch’ in High School Confidential (1958).
“Tool a fast shore, swing with a gassy chick.
Turn on to a thousand joys.
Smile on what happened, or check what’s going to happen,
You’ll miss what’s happening.
Turn your eyes inside and dig the vacuum.”
Cheers me up when nothing else can…

“I have never produced anything cold but always to some extent with my blood. I do not want to die…until I have faithfully made the most of my talent and cultivated the seed that was placed in me until the last small twig has grown. I am in the world to change the world.”
