***************

Dissonant music
is a crocodile dawn that
breaks like a pistol

***************

God is a ruin . . .
A blind, inexhaustible,
obtuse idiot

***************

Virtue is ugly . . .
Inert, impersonal, a
stuffed bear of passion

***************

An audience should
be mummified—silence is
an ovation’s fire

***************

Tradition is an
unwavering excuse to
demolish the world
