“A thousand dreams within me softly burn.” -- Poet Arthur Rimbaud
A Season In Hell / The Drunken Boat - Arthur Rimbaud Long ago, if I remember well, my life was a feast where all hearts were open, where all wines flowed. One evening, I sat beauty on my knees. − She tasted bitter. − And I spat her out. I took up arms against justice. I took to my heels. O witches, O poverty, O hate, I have entrusted my treasure to you! I purged all human hope from my mind. On every joy I pounced silently, like a wild beast, and strangled it.
