Picasso said that before success,
few understand the artist.

After success,
few understand the artist.

I like that.

I've worked at a lot of different jobs in my life.
One year I had 32 jobs.

The job I've liked best so far is
being a poet.

As a poet, I have very little money, and
I live in the shadows of polite society as an unknown.

That's my current job.
I consider myself a success.

Either you understand that,
or you don't.

Either way, I'm glad I'm here.
