"Prototype of a Weapon for the next War'
You had to have permission to hold it and touch it with an adult at your elbow in case you decided to poke through the soft agreed-upon treasure of the real world leaving a holler a pattern in an idea that you could almost see through while they watch, while everybody watches"
The thing you take for granted is the thing that deceives you. It was a happy night. I ate milk and cookies and the city spun like a top.
The thing that deceives you is what you don't notice:
I ate milk and cookies...
You're made most real to yourself by what you notice: sandwiches with everything in them; chickens shrieking like children.
The city stood still. It was a stack of silver almost as high as the Eiffel Tower.
And you... you were nimble and free. You were a half-shape, like melted wax. Your hair flew up, like you were under water.
Now, from a slit in the watchtower, I will make myself as clear as a glass eye:
the thing you don't notice is the thing that I'm lying to you about. Art is a protest against reality."

"My mistress lykes the glove I wear She lykes its fine black leather She lykes when I wear just one glove And not the two together I lean upon my forke to feede and speak of God and Law And as I do gesticulate the glove looks like a paw I wear the glove to wash and pray To shite and eate and write I wear it in the afternoon, the morning and the night. Once it snagged upon a hook-- "It's coming off!" She cryed. The lady fled: she lyked the glove because of what it hides"
