Never Negotiate, a running review series and tribute to the uncowed, industrious torch bearers of underground lit , or a hybrid of interview, deep readership and cursory biography cobbled together with healthy dollops of neurosis #1: Journey to the Center of the Onion, Ted Prokash.

All of the treatments were, in their own ways, total hells, but the treatment for high-inference psychosis was probably the worst of them.

We decided we would be there and we were discussing the way that old men exit their cars when we heard the tick-tick-crash. We paused and then returned to our discussion, not bothering with the wounded keeper of time.

Maybe some dicrotic-beated song had played on the radio and his essence keenly searched for new information. New information. That’s the point of it all, right? Hold on . . . point of it all? We’re gonna have to radio Jim “No Plan” Gallagher on that one.
