God knows what will happen to women who drink wine, girls that speak old languages, and suns that set too early. Breton Proverb.

In Breton
In Breton, they say
there’s a word that weaves between 
green and blue, allowing for 
haze, precipitation,
the burr of distance,
the welcome shock 
of escaping light 
warming your shoulders.

No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings. — William Blake

Anonymous, autonomous
Will likely get the best of us yet
Before you disappear
If you can lend me half an ear Ill regret

If I treat you like a number
Its because I cant remember your name
So have another cigarette
And help me to forget what I came

You run too fast, fly too high
Run too fast and fly too high

On dark and lonely nights Im only
Right when things are bright on the floor
Dancing and romancing
Gallivanting with a handsome I score

And if you dont believe me, you should
See me when Im ready to roar
Cause Ill lose my concentration
With a new infatuation, Im sure

You run too fast, fly too high
You run too fast, fly too high
We got no past, no goodbye
You run to fast and you fly too high

Would you believe
I was once gonna be somebody? Yeah
I packed up my bags and I
Took what I had to the city, yeah yeah

Man, I was rough
To find the best I could be
Waiting for the limit
On a color TV

Now Ive made it this far
Got a room on the park and a view
And you
Fly too high

You run too fast, fly too high
Run too fast, fly too high
We got no past, no goodbye
Run to fast and you fly too

Hanging around on the infield, what do you steal
But another feel at the top?
Making believe in the long run, when a shotgun
Is the way to get out of the shop

Hang tail in a new jail, you can go bail
You can dance until you drop
Cause theres no fool like an old fool in a new school
You just cant stop

You run too fast, fly too high
Run too fast, fly too high
Got no past, no goodbye
Run to fast and you fly too

The clown has great importance. as part of the search for what is laughable and ridiculous in man.

 

 

 

We should put the emphasis on the rediscovery of our own individual clown, the one that has grown-up within us and which society does not allow us to express.

Open-mouthed, with painted smile, the clowns stand in formation,

Constantly they shake their heads in cynical negation,

Notwithstanding players skill the clowns will always win,

They walk free from the courtroom and the cycle starts again.

A clown needn’t be the same out of the ring as he has to be when he’s in it. If you look at photographs of clowns when they’re just being ordinary men, they’ve got quite sad faces.

The only veil that stands between perception of what is underneath the desolate surface is your courage. Dare to breach the surface and sink.”

DESOLATION

BY DAVIS

We are tired of the benches, our beds in the park,
We welcome the sundown that heralds the dark.
White Lady Methylate!
Keep us warm and from crying.
Hold back the hate
And hasten the dying.

The tribes are all gone,
The spears are all broken:
Once we had bread here,
You gave us stone

Imagination gallops; judgment merely walks.

 

 

For Justice, though she’s painted blind,Is to the weaker side inclin’d.

“Pain can be endured and defeated only if it is embraced. Denied or feared, it grows in perception if not in reality. The best response to terror is righteous anger, confidence in ultimate justice, a refusal to be intimidated.”
