“Ginsberg with Barbara Rubin, Allen’s 39th birthday party, Barry Miles’ apartment, London, June 3, 1965. Miles had organised the party, since Allen was staying at his place already. As the story goes John Lennon and George Harrison stopped by round midnight to find a naked Ginsberg with a do-not-disturb sign tied to his penis.”

“Once when I was visiting Allen in his apartment he asked me if I would like some coffee. Having said “Yes,” he presented me with a metal bowl with coffee in it. The bowl seemed strange (like a dog dish) and I nursed the coffee to cool it down. Soon he started asking “Are you finished with that, man?” I would say “No, not yet” and after awhile I started to feel uncomfortable because the bowl seemed important to him. When I finally said “Yes,” he grabbed the bowl away — threw the remaining coffee in the sink and sat down with the bowl for his breakfast cereal. I was using his only bowl.” - Keenan
