The voice in this track is William S. Burroughs who's talking about how he wanted to become a writer when he was young, because:

"I always thought that poets were people who were sniffing cocaine in Mayfair and smoking hashish in Tangier."

Opposed to Burroughs, Ivan Turgenev writes in his novel 'First Love' about the poet Maidanov "Like almost all poets he had a cold character", which must be closer to the truth, since Burroughs did not seem to gain satisfaction from his notion.

This little example shows how an artist can gain attention by playing with an audiences yearnings.
