Elevate form over function to get at less easily articulable truths.

The Astronomer
by Rabindranath Tagore
I only said, "When in the evening the round full moon gets
entangled among the beaches of that Dadam.
tree, couldn't somebody
catch it?"
But dada laughed at me and said, "Baby, you are the silliest
child I have ever known.
The moon is ever so far from us, how could
anybody catch it?"
I said, "Dada, how foolish you are! When mother looks out of
her window and smiles down at us playing, would you call her far
away?"
Still dada said, "You are a stupid child! But, baby where
could you find a net big enough to catch the moon with?"
I said, "Surely you could catch it with your hands.
"
But dada laughed and said, "You are the silliest child I have
known.
If it came nearer, you would see how big the moon is.
"
I said, "Dada, what nonsense they teach at your school! When
mother bends her face down to kiss us, does her face look very
big?"
But still dada says, "You are a stupid child.



And :


"The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.
Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf."

Tzara, resurfacing into some phletorum::

No non sense gives additional space, before a fall.

The discontinuance of winter, is long for discontent ; my son of yorkie!

But either way ok
I guess.

Tristan Tzara


The masochistic xxxxxx(expletive) of requited love(4. three oranges, is soooooooooo close to love, then,

Like this symbol's irreplaceable symbol, the metaphor risen from kitsch,

As Dali, well not nearly and his Gala


* this whole train of expression started with S.Dali's ' The Metamorphosis of Narcissus, led into Dali's redemption by Gaia.

I'll Be a Tree

I'll be a tree, if you are its flower,
Or a flower, if you are the dew-
I'll be the dew, if you are the sunbeam,
Only to be united with you.

My lovely girl, if you are the Heaven,
I shall be a star above on high;
My darling, if you are hell-fire,
To unite us, damned I shall die.
