Within these pages you’ll meet the likes of Frank Zappa, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry and Gore Vidal, and steam open correspondence between the author and Pete Townshend.

THE CONTENTS OF ELVIS’ STOMACH

Much of the romance goes out of the extreme when the extreme becomes part of an autopsy. Elvis Presley is the subject of much more detailed examination in other parts of this book. In this short inclusion the contents of his stomach after his death are treated as a piece of found poetry.

Codeine—at a concentration ten times higher than the toxic level

Morphine—possible metabolite of codeine

Methaqualone—Quaalude, above toxic level

Diazepam—Valium

Diazepam metabolite

Ethinamate—Valmid

Ethchlorvynol—Placidyl

Amobarbital—Amytal

Pentobarbital—Nembutal

Pentobarbital—Carbrital

Meperidine—Demerol

Phenyltoloxamine—Sinutab (a decongestant)


Published 1990 as a guerrilla flyer in New York
