Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $8,285.90 (includes buyer's premium)


Impressive handwritten poem by Morrison, unsigned, one page both sides, 7.25 x 11.5, no date, removed from a composition notebook found in the famous ‘127 Fascination’ box left to his girlfriend Pam Courson. Magnificent handwritten poem, the first side labeled page number “35,” reading, in full (spelling and grammar retained): “Onyx breath / dysentary / you should have seen / Denver St. Louis / & Chicago / I Know / swollen red-faced / babie’s skull / We like to climb.” The reverse, page number “36,” in full: “Hey what I got was / that he was too fast / O No! / an old cunt just / imposed double head / I can go either way / a nickle for a sermon / this place / but this place / it was all/ a double sermon / My Cane.” In fine condition.

The ‘127 Fascination’ box contained hundreds of pages of drafts and manuscripts of Morrison’s unpublished writing, this page of poetry among them. The Doors frontman’s true passion was poetry, famously regarding himself as a writer and poet as much as a singer; one motivation for his departure from the band was to focus on his writing. This is a wonderful representation of Morrison’s poetry, embodying the cryptic irreverence seen throughout his work. Any handwritten material from Morrison is quite scarce, with this being an ideal example as an unpublished poetic piece. Pre-certified REAL.
