kristen, it was the interviewer in the Rolling Stone magazine that made the comment that this is one of Johnny's favorite poems and not Johnny himself. Unless others have seen him quoted on this before?

In the February issue of RollingStone, page 54, the interviewer talks about Johnny liking the poem Desiderata.
