Kim Goes Shopping is William S Burroughs relishing Kim's sexual chemistry.

From "The Place Of Dead Roads"

Here Birth Of The Cool delights in the outlaw status of the beat poets.

Kim Carson, the upholder of the Code of the Johnsons, whose precepts were: Mind Your Own Business and Give Help When Help Is Needed: El Hombre Invisible (Kim) gets into his cowboy gear, and does his weekly shopping for the gang.

Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg played a key part in the development of William S Burroughs' routines - they acted them out to each other, typed them up and helped shape them into print.

Birth of the Cool unites them all in a sexual and creative ménage.
