Revisiting Dead Fingers Talk: The Tape Experiments of William S. Burroughs

listen to your present time tapes and you will begin to 
see who you are and what you are doing here mix 
yesterday in with today and hear tomorrow your future 
rising out of old recordings 
everybody splice himself in with everybody else
