“How curious - but Jones must have his reasons. Everything rhymed with the Cavaliere’s condition.
But what are you painting, said the Cavaliere politely. I do not understand
Moments of slippage, when anything seems possible and not
everything makes sense.”
(The Volcano Lover, Susan Sontag 1992)
Artist, Mystic, Slapstick, Lipstick.
Moaney and honest,
honey and mustard.
In the open prison,
The twitching hour is upon thee!
(But that hole in the hill
leads down to the sea.)
Then gouge out your eyes of your own volition,
‘cus everything rhymes with your condition.
Show Lyrics -Lucy Stein, Berlin 2010
