while we are on the topic, allow me to share my favorite Parisian poem... by one of my favorite poets. A perpetually drunk mad genius who didn't just write poetry. A collection of his short fiction, for example, that stands out is Erections, Ejaculations, Exhibitions, and General Tales of Ordinary Madness.

anyway, he had a lot to say about America (esp the west coast). But also Paris.

Paris

by Charles Bukowski

never
even in calmer times
have I ever
dreamed of
bicycling through that
city
wearing a
beret

and
Camus
always
pissed
me
off.

Life, fleeting
The prisoner takes his beating
Spinning round the 3rd rock of the Sun
The Illuminati has won.

whys he riding down cat in the hat? - pretty strong plot
order/ boredom -> chaos/fun + danger -> anxiety about order's return -> leaving us to puzzle about what the kids will do now that they're 'experienced'
i mean it's essentially the garden of eden story ffs

The Rise of Life

The sun shines on down
While the wind swirls around
Walking on this almighty Earth
Waiting for the mother to give birth
The newborn's arrival
struggling with survival
don't worry your parents are here
Moving into an uncertain future
You shall have nothing to fear.
