-- i keep getting this feeling that Dhalgren is in New Orleans
and i need to go there

it is terrifying
and very compelling.

_Dhalgren_ is a sex fantasy about danger. What's going on in New Orleans is not a fantasy but is very very real.

Your "hungry" as opposed to the hungry and dying people there who would rather be anywhere but there.

it doesn't feel good
i'm not saying i want to have a party there and a fuck fest
it's not about that at all
somehow to help
-- that desire

and looking for something burgeoning there...

i've always wanted to get to that city
and haven't made it yet...
now i feel like i might go there and do something and help and discover something about the world i'd never see anywhere else...

but i have no idea what i could do...

I think that right now, there's nothing to do there because there's no infrastructure. I think that over the next month / year / years there's going to be a lot of work to be done in the refugee camps.

i regard Dhalgren as more [..other..] than a Sex Fantasy...

Have you read much of Delany's non-SF work? It put _Dhalgren_ into a completely different perspective for me.

Sam's a horny guy.

I'm from Tulsa too. Didn't know where I wanted to go next until I read "Secrets & Mysteries of Hawaii". Quick read. Thought it was about Hawaii but it isn't.
