Sad Paradise of the American Night

The Big Engines
In the night --
The Diesel on the Pass
The Airplane in the Pan
American night --
Night --
The Blazing Silence in the Night,
The Pan Canadian Night --
The Eagle on the Pass,
The Wire on the Rail,
The High Hot Iron
of my heart.

The blazing chickaball
Extry special Super
High Job
Ole 169 be
Down to Kill Roy.

Jack Kerouac, Mexico City Blues, 146th Chorus
