Birthday Boy


Arthur Rimbaud in Africa



I was once a fan of Rimbaud. Happy Birthday. I guess I still am a fan. But like the music and poetry of Jim Morrison, our own Rimbaud, I grew up and realized that in life, the practical outweighs the mystical.

I'll leave you this Friday with poetry of the tragic, not the surreal. Shoxrux. He may not be Rimbaud or Morrison, but it suits me. Enjoy.
