	Joe closes 'Bottle for a headstone' with 'Pull my daisy'.
	Originally it was a poem written by Allen Ginsberg, Jack
Kerouac and Neal Cassady, one writing the first line, another writing
the second, and so on, each person only being shown the line before.
	Robert Frank made a short film using it:
	David Amram set it to music. Joe uses the version from David
Amram's album "No More Walls"; the featured vocalist is Lynn
Sheffield. I think she puts real feeling into it - which she had to
manufacture - I can't find any in the words or
movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOiFuP0bncM
	There's a fun live performance video filmed at 'Beyond
	https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJKjF8QPjtU a venue in Marina
del Rey that Joe could have been to. (I've been.)

	Amram talks about making the film in
