by Charles Baudelaire
Tell me, enigmatic man, whom do you love beet?
Your father, your mother, your sister, or your brother?
"I have neither father, nor mother, nor sister, nor brother."
Your friends, then?
"You use a word that until now has had no meaning for me."
"I am ignorant of the latitude in which it is situated."
"Her I would love willingly, goddess and immortal."
"I hate it as you hate your God."
What, then, extraordinary stranger, do you love?
"I love the clouds
The clouds that pass
The marvellous clouds."
