The poet and the jester (on embracing duality)

It is the conversation between the poet and the jester. The poet- with solemn introspection; the jester- with careless regard, each captivating the other. It is the ultimate irony of this unlikely coupling, entwining their words, combining truth and mischief, sabotaging established decorum. Neither threatened nor contrite, nor challenging the others' wisdom, but with enthusiastic fornication and eager indecency they consecrate their mutual madness

This is a poem that really speaks to me as I embrace that duality. Your defining words have given me a clear picture of what is tumbling about in my head.
