This is a "cut-up" of acclaimed American novelist, essayist, social critic, painter and spoken word performer, William S. Burroughs. He explains the origin and technique of cut-ups, which is basically taking an already existing text, in a newspaper or otherwise, and cutting out the words to form a new statement with a new meaning.
