Ginsberg, now 52, had been up until dawn on the day of his arrest composing Plutonian Ode, a six-page jeremiad on the "most deadly substance in the world." He pleaded not guilty to criminal trespass and obstructing a passageway, charges that could lead to a $300 fine and up to six months in, the slam. Undaunted, Ginsberg vowed to "spread the plutonium waste message"—to use Orlovsky's unlikely simile—"like Paul Revere."
