there must be a reason why its mostly rich folks that talk about the beauty of this and that, and the joy of being a connoisseur of some bourgeoisie thing like wine. poor men don’t connoisseur jack, because they haven’t got the peace of mind to pay attention. can you be collecting wine when your stomach’s rumbling, talking about the fragrance and body of a rare vintage when the bill collector’s on his way to your crib (again) and the little voice in your head is telling you over and over again, “you’re broke, you’re poor, you’re broke and you’re poor” like its some evil mantra of depression?
