Journal d'un nomade

Restless, shifting, fugacious as time itself is a certain vast bulk of the population of the red brick district of the lower West Side. Homeless, they have a hundred homes. They flit from furnished room to furnished room, transients forever - transients in abode, transients in heart and mind. They sing "Home, Sweet Home" in ragtime; they carry their lares et penates in a bandbox; their vine is entwined about a picture hat; a rubber plant is their fig tree. (O. Henry)

Dialogue between Oedipus and his Dad

(Oedipus comes back home from school, gets rid of his heavy school bag and throws himself into the arms of his dad)

- I love you, dad.

- You are nothing but a liar, Oedipus. My shrink, Herr Doktor Freud, told me today that you want to kill me.

- How could you believe a cocaine addict?

- You dare insult the father of psychoanalysis!

- He is the one who is insulting me by featuring me as a murderer. As to cocaine, I’m not fancying anything. In his letters to his wife Marta, he confessed his addiction to cocaine.

- He’s a doctor. He knows what to do.

- You bet! His pipe never quits his lips.

- Could you imagine a psychoanalyst without a pipe? That’s ridiculous!

- Anyway, you’re just getting hocus-pocus from this shrink, dad. How much does he charge you for every session?

- It’s none of your business. He also told me that you want to sleep with your mother. Is that true?

- I think this perverted mind is an addict of Pasolini’s movies.

- You already know Pasolini at your age!!!

- Yes I do. But this kind of movies is out of fashion, like psychoanalysis.

- Never forget, dear son, that Sigmund Freud is the discoverer of the continent of the Subconscious.

- The Subconscious is like Plato’s Atlantis: it doesn’t need to be discovered to exist.

- I hate to discuss with you, Oedipus. I’m going to bed. Good night!

- Good night, dad! Don’t forget to lock the door of your bedroom. You never know…
