“people   were  staring   at  lucien
because,  i  imagine,  he  was  so
beautiful. i asked him why people
were  always  staring  at  him.  he
said, “they’ve always done that.”
there  was  no  way  to explain it – 
actually, people do stare at lucien.”                                                                                                                             – jack kerouac in a letter to allen ginsberg
