Thoughts on Rimbaud

Reading once again through my copy of A season in hell and The Drunken Boat first published New Directions 1961.

“In his delirium  Rimbaud thought always of Harar. Before he died on November 10, 1891 , he asked that a legacy of three thousand francs be sent his servant Djami in Harar.”

I bought Ethiopian coffee today, tasted and that aftertaste that could only be Ethiopia and remembered again Arthur. There is much  that I have forotten.
