Intellectual History

By John Dobby Boe

I saw Rilke milk a cow.

I saw Yeats on skates, and wow,

The sound of Ezra Pound

Sticking out his belly at

Docile T.S. Eliot.


I saw Jung annoyed at Freud

For spilling wine on Gertrude Stein.

Then Freud, annoyed, began to rant,

“The Devil can but Immanuel can’t.”
