VAGABONDS Pitiful brother! what frightful nights I owed him! “I have not put enough ardor into this enterprise. I have trifled with his infirmity. My fault should we go back to exile, and to slavery.” He implied I was unlucky and of a very strange innocence, and would add disquieting reasons. For reply, I would jeer at this Satanic doctor and, in the end, going over to the window, I would create, beyond the countryside crossed by bands of rare music, phantoms of nocturnal extravagance to come. After this vaguely hygienic diversion, I would lie down on my pallet and no sooner asleep than, almost every night, the poor brother would rise, his mouth foul, eyes starting from his head,—just as he had dreamed he looked! and would drag me into the room, howling his dream of imbecilic sorrow. I had, in truth, pledged myself to restore him to his primitive state of child of the Sun,—and, nourished by the wine of caverns and the biscuit of the road, we wandered, I impatient to find the place and the formula. -- Arthur Rimbaud translated by Louise Varese Arthur Rimbaud is one of the founders of modern poetry. He became famous in Paris in the 1870s. After making a big impact on the world of poetry in his teens he quit writing and became a vagabond in Europe, a deserter in Java and gun runner and explorer in Africa until his early death. This poem speaks of his affair with the esteemed French poet Paul Verlaine, which ended in Verlaine shooting Rimbaud and going to jail. Rimbaud was a major influence on Patti Smith, the musician. #poetry #rimbaud #verlaine #pattismith #adventure

https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/two-pins-will-pop-stock-market-bubble This is a very interesting if somewhat technical explanation of the forces that are inevitably going to take down the bubbling stock market. “To me, there is only one inescapable economic conclusion – inflation and interest rates are heading higher as better economic growth in the last half of 2021 is delivered by the unprecedented stimulus. Unfortunately, the stimulus is in the form of mostly transfer payments and not in expansion of productivity or capacity. The economic boom will be a sugar-based high and there is an almost inevitable bust cycle emerging by or in 2023 when the heady fiscal stimulus ends. Today’s record stock prices belie a likely hard economic landing that may lie ahead.” (Doug Kass) #stimulus #stocks #stockmarket #theFed #investing
