In our desire to impose form on the world we have lost the capacity to see the form that is there;

midwinter's prosaic and verse obsession is and has always been prostitution. this comes in no small part from the well accepted and fully documented fact that midwinter was born not to one, not two, but three whores in the redlight district of a sleepy southern town. this modern medical miracle, if you can withstand that much alliteration, would have made him an instantaneous international icon of the late twentieth century sexual revolution and modern science, of course, if it weren't for Nixon eating that Vietnamese eight-month-old on live TV on midwinter's brithday. his intellectual raison d'etre being so defined from birth makes his inexhaustible pursuit of all things ladies of the night more noble than first blush would indicate.

oh stop being so modest. don't forget that your Siamese mothers were the first reported case of fraternal conjoined twins -- your birth is a profound testament to how screwed up nature can be.
