J. WATTERS knows where the wild things go

To the Unlikely Stories home pageThe next time someone tells you that all Freudian psychology boils down to sex, do the world a favor and slap that ignorant mother fucker stupid. Freud very clearly explained that he believed human consciousness was divided into two impulses: the desire to live forever, and the desire to die immediately. Sex is simply a symbol, and the potential for, eternal life. That's why men build skyscrapers that look their pricks: the building, like the prick, offers a shot at immortality.

J. Watters understands very well the twin desires to live and die. His poems of sex, violence, and emotional and physical torture run the gamut of human emotion, teaching us what we want and what we are afraid of, and showing us that there is absolutely no difference between the two.

J. Watters says, "I study animal behavior (ethology). My primary influences are Charles Darwin, Niko Tinbergen (a dead ethologist), Pete Townshend, and some of the old American drunks. I've been writing poems for around 15 years." Drop him a line at jvwatters@ucdavis.edu.
