First and last, Wojnarowicz is a witness: Untitled (Sirloin Steaks) and Tuna (both 1983).

On July 22, 1992, Wojnarowicz died. Allen Ginsberg wrote Howlin 1956; in the 1980s and early '90s, David Wojnarowicz lived it. Both Ginsberg and Wojnarowicz sing a song of America and otherness, and the last line of Howlfeels written for Wojnarowicz from us all: "in my dreams you walk dripping from a sea-journey on the highway across America in tears to the door of my cottage in the Western night."
