He was my buddy all through
The elementary and middle school
I always thought that
He was a little bit crazy

He lived with his mom and his whole place looked like a mess
Two fat grandmas
No father and
His grandmas
Often fought
Right in the kitchen
I’d witnessed it a few times and
I ended up was thinking
‘How the Hell he could stand it?’
His mother was a doctor and
There was a huge collection
Of medical books at their place
Anatomical albums, stuff like that
Showing parts of human bodies
Open bellies, brains, dicks and pussies
I hated when
He tried to
Show me something from those atlases
Sometimes I spent an afternoon
At his place and he
Kept pushing those books
Under my nose
‘Hey look, look at this! It’s a pussy, a real woman’s pussy.’
‘Look, here’s a dick. Here’s what’s inside of it, huh?’
I hardly found it amazing, in fact
Those illustrations made me sick
He insisted I should have a good look
The weirdest thing was that
He claimed that
Those pictures turned him on
Once I was hanging around his place when
He started to talk about sex as usual then asked
‘How come I’ve never seen your dick, man?
I mean, we know each other
For such a long time and yet
I’ve never seen it.’
‘That’s ‘cause I never showed it to you,’ I said
‘Hey why don’t you show it to me now?’ He said
‘Why don’t you show me yours?’
‘Huh! You know, people pay huge money
To see other people’s sexual organs.’
‘Oh yeah?’
I rummaged in my pocket and handed him
All loose change I had
‘Show me your dick and this is yours,’ – I said.
He lowered his pants but
Just for a moment
Perhaps he was aroused or maybe not
I didn’t have a chance to see it clearly
Not that I was that much interested
He put his pants back on quickly then
We talked about other things finally
I rose to leave when
I noticed that
He forgot to pocket that change
It was still lying where I left it
I collected it
While he wasn’t looking
Put it back into my pocket and left.
‘What the Hell, he’s a cheat,’ I thought
I felt like laughing
Some years later I learned that
This middle school buddy of mine
Became a doctor
A real professional but
The funny thing was that
I’ve never ceased
To think of him as
Some kind of
Weird guy
Perhaps this is why
I distrust all medics ever since.

A comment on the intriguing quote by Boudelaire on the cover. What I believe Boudelaire is suggesting is that anything made by man can be narrated prosaically and objectively or poetically. When man is conceived as nothing but a machine and the sum of its part, then he has dehumanized himself and the poetical is no longer possible, not even in art. He will explain himself but fail to understand himself. For example, I can explain chemistry objectively but I can only understand chemistry poetically when I decide to narrate the history of chemistry as one of man's creation. Then man's self understanding grows. So a scientist can surely be a poet and vice-versa; science and powtry are not mutually exclusive, both remain possible and are useful as long as man the scientist or man the poet have not dehumanized themselves. When that happens, then you have the Nazi going to the Opera to listen to the Niebelung Ring for nine hours and then go and put people in ovens the next day rationalizing what ought never have been rationalized.
