Zelmo Swift: You know, I don't go out much. Did you know that? I'm actually scared of women. You must be frightened of men too, huh? I don't know what to say to them, to women. I say, "Hello! Hello, how are you?" I say anything I can think of, but I don't say anything, not really. I'm a loner, I'm always alone. My interests are in Keats, Shelley, Swinburne, Shakespeare, Marlowe, Wordsworth... Opera, poetry, music... Did you know I was reading since I was twelve years old? I wear glasses now, I read so much.
