I posted this quote on Facebook without any explanation and got back 
some curious responses.  I'm wondering if anyone can add light to 
why-where-and/or when:

"Geniuses are people who dash off weird, wild, incomprehensible poems 
with astonishing facility, & then go & get booming drunk & sleep in the 
gutter…people who have genius do not pay their board, as a general thing”

I suspect he was reacting to someone being referred to as a genius...
