The Stephen Malkmus of the mid-1800s

"Nothing screams 'class' like talking about poetry. Screaming about poetry screams 'schizophrenia,' but talking about poetry is great, especially at cocktail parties. Below I have translated a well-known poem by respected poet Walt Whitman (the Stephen Malkmus of the mid-1800s). Internalize the meaning, even if you don’t understand the original content, and I guarantee you will be one step closer to snagging that doctor or lawyer spouse you’ve been searching for ever since you realized money doesn’t grow on trees."
