Everybody says I caught the disease from my father. My one and only poppy. Dad. Zdenek Zochling. Zed, for short. (I suppose in America he'd be called Zee.)

They don't say I inherited it from him. They just say I caught the disease.

The collecting disease, that is. (It's a disease because it makes other people sick with envy because they don't have all the stuff that I have. Though, as you may find out, I love to give things away, too. I mean, not just swap them, but give them away.)

Or is there always a price to pay?

Of course I've got a database of all my stuff, but don't think I'm going to show it to you. You've got to figure out for yourself what sort of things I collect. Although I'll give you a few clues. Like: I wrote a poem about what I do with the things I collect (so from that it's obvious what some of them are ), somewhere (I think) there's something about my shrine (where I worship, so to speak)...

Oh, by the way, don't think I'm kinky or anything. I just like things...lots of them...organised my own special way.

Especially words. I love to collect words. I've got zillions of lists like this:

affanato

b

chthonic

d

epiodion

ferrovial

g

h

i

j

k

l

m

n

o

pantoum

q

r

shirred

t

unisonously

verjuice

w

x

yarmulke

z

But I didn't really catch the collecting disease from my father, Zed. (Though, perhaps, like him I developed the symptoms for the same reason...) The real reason I get so obsessed about collecting is that it takes my mind of things that otherwise I can't stop thinking about all the time.

Like sex.

Or girls, in other words.

It's in my fantasies (pantyfantasies, legfantasies, lipfantasies, swimwearfantasies, night-n-day-fantasies) and lots of thoughts and feelings that just, well, well up inside me and threaten to overtake me when I least expect it. Although I ought to expect it.

I even write poems about it.

And I certainly make collections, like my shrine which I have already talked about.

There are a few other things I should mention.
