Beware all those who fall in love with words, for their intuition will be tainted by hope, and their actions, guided by illusion.

my dreams blow  beautiful bubbles
I wonder why
all of them burst

Mightier Than the Sword, Yet No Match for Our Lord

Penn so clever,
Always the teller.
Pulling the lever,
Ever the seller.

Mute his cohort,
One part Harpo.
Miming some retort,
Hauling the cargo.

Truth

“Seeing that nowadays there is nothing wholesome left in this world of ours; seeing that the wine we drink and the freedom we enjoy are equally adulterate and derisory; and finally, seeing that it takes a considerable degree of goodwill to believe that the governing classes are worthy of respect and that the lower classes are worthy of help or pity, it seems [...] no more absurd or insane to ask of my fellow men a sum total of illusion barely equivalent to that which they expend everyday on idiotic objects, to persuade themselves that the town of Pantin is an artificial Nice, a factitious Menton.”

Huysmans in Against Nature (1884), p. 114.

Decadence

Mirage

fearless, clinging to the underside of sheer rock faces

roaring underwater, out of primary habitat

the wind sweeps through removing what scant vapors and traces… 51 more words
