Drawing (237) from THE BASIS OF MAKE-UP

"A Roman floor mosaic from the year 500 AD in present-day Istanbul: a lion fighting with an elephant. That's how one would prefer nature and its participants, having them eliminate themselves. Ah, and with what outstanding intelligence man hunts animals and keeps them captive. Five men dream of it on hot marble slabs in the Cemberlitas Hammam of 1584. Their association engines are running at full speed and producing chimeras of naked Chinese recruits whose legs they can pull: from a low-wage country to imported luxury limousines. An old saying already knew that dreams are piles of shit that tell stories. That's their nature; they stem from the digestive tract. You have to wake up so that they won't kill you, and fall asleep again when the scum of the real can no longer be endured. In between, the happiness of a second, the little death and volatile forgetfulness. The first comment of extraterrestrials in face of our uninhabited planet: 'That must have been love.'"
