Sanity

(in its complexity)
is much more inexplicable
than madness
in its simplicity.

The first miracle

is birth
or breaking out of the egg.
The second miracle
is male erection
especially a mule's.
The last miracle is
death.

Add worship
to miracle
and you get
deceit everlasting.

I don't find

that my socks smell worse
on the twentieth day of wearing
than they did on the first.

MONEY

You can make a market
out of anything:
love, justice, beauty, tragedy,
faith, hope and charity.

I really do not care:
civilisation, it seems to me,
is just a dancing bear.

Capitalism

is a system wherein those who are active
constantly try to cheat each other
and those who are passive.

If this really is the least-bad system we can devise,
we are less intelligent than dogs or rabbits.

Yesterday

- was I the only person in the world
eating cherries, drinking Gaillac
while listening to Schnittke's
3rd quartet ?

The last people

that a true poet wants to meet
are other poets - whether true or false;
which is why so few true poets
go to poetry festivals.
