>Peter Orlovsky

[Peter Orlovsky, returned to New York from India, Avenue C and 5th Street, September 1963. c. Allen Ginsberg Estate]

Word has just reached us that Peter Orlovsky, Allen’s lifetime companion, who has been battling lung cancer these past few months, has taken a serious turn for the worse and his condition is unstable and rapidly deteriorating. His right lung is basically not functioning and he has developed pneumonia. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. More news to follow.

Waylon Lewis at Elephant Journal has assembled a decent mix of images and video clips of Peter over the years as little tribute >>
