“shaving file” with ideas and concepts that came to him while shaving. He found shaving to be a very creative time. While shaving one morning, Ted pondered the swank New York party from the night before and compiled what he called his first poem. “Mrs. Van Bleck of the Newport Van Blecks / is so goddam rich, she has gold-plated sex / whereas Miggles and Mitzie and Bitzie and Sue / have the commonplace thing and it just has to do.”
