The Hare said that “Come Winter, this cold and lonely time, it is a useful thing indeed to remind ourselves of the eternal Certainties:”
- Time scratches at our backs.
- The health of a hedgehog can be determined by the wriggliness of his nose. He has a soft underside.
- We are running out of pages in our diaries.
- No-one is permitted to read them, and no-one wants to, unless you tell them it is not permitted.
- The butterfly roars in its cage, like a lion.
- As the hammer is taken to the manikin in the (emptied) fishtank, a birthday candle distorts grotesquely as it’s waxen body melts.
- It is fashioned into the likeness of a popular cartoon character…
- What to be done with these inconsequential wonders?
- Mother, when will you understand that my every word is not a demand, and that I am capable of starting my own conversation…
- Charlie Chaplain and Einstein were, once and always, the same person.
- To wake up every morning, with a gift under one’s tree.
- Apples, Apples, Strawberries.
- The stork makes the cherry the most narrative of fruits.
- The poet who equates eroticism with fruit metaphors, is a sad and lonely man. Here, have a peach.
- The Gate is opened by the Monk who does not close it. He kindly leads three blind mice up the path.
