I bought a ticket for the Nova Express,
a ticket that later exploded,
leaving me with neither ticket nor ride.
A little later I had a naked lunch
and was arrested for it.
Much more junk happened to me,
more than I care to reveal right now,
all thanks to Bill Burroughs.

This innocent little joyride was inspired by a photo of William S. Burroughs’ most famous four novels side-by-side: Naked Lunch, Nova Express, The Ticket that Exploded and Junkie.
