The poet detained by the police.

Typical-poets are almost always the first to be hasseled by "the man"
Several weeks ago after my dinner and before my trip the to sweet shop I wandered into one of my villages many bookshops and picked up a rather neglected copy of Lucien Clergue's photobook of "Jean Cocteau and the testament of Orpheus". Once home and in bed I carefully went through Clergue's remarkable islolated and surreal images and found this picture of Cocteau encountering some of the local motorpolice.

So there you have it..most likely the first motorcycle blog to have Cocteau, Orpheus, or Clergue.
