Allen Ginsberg: Das Geheul 1. Ich sah die besten Köpfe meiner Generation vom Wahnsinn zerstört, verhungernd hysterisch nackt, wie sie sich durch die Negerstraßen schleppten im Morgengrauen, auf der Suche nach einer letzten Spritze, 2. engelköpfige Freaks, gierig nach der alten himmlischen Verbindung zum Stern-Dynamo in der Maschinerie der Nacht, 3. die armselig und verwahrlost und hohläugig und high in der übernatürlichen Finsternis ihrer über den Städten schwebenden Kaltwasserbuden hockten und kifften und Jazz meditierten, 4. die dem Himmel ihre Gehirne entblößten unter der Hochbahn und mohammedanische Engel taumeln sahen auf den Dächern erleuchteter Mietskasernen, 5. die durch Universitäten strichen mit strahlenden kühlen Augen und Arkansas halluzinierten und düstere Blake-Tragödien zwischen den Magistern des Krieges,

Write a passage where a character thinks about the future. Don't do this as simply a preview of the plot. Rather, have the character see the future concretely, in images. Thus, "When he thought of the future, he saw his family gathered for the Seder with his youngest grandson's high voice piping the four questions and the rich smell of pot roast wafting from the kitchen..." Or perhaps, "When she thought of the future at that moment, all she could see was a wide flat plain covered in ash the same gray color as the overcast sky..."
