view a play at the Globe and you will Observe damned saints committing honorable villainy – view a play at the Globe and you will observe fair foulness and foul fairness – view a play at the Globe and you will observe beautifully bound books containing vile matter – view a play at the Globe and you will Observe kings making progress through the guts of beggars

watch a painting of a man and you will Notice a natural pose is impossible to strike – watch a painting of a man and you will Notice only shallow observers refrain from scrutinizing appearances – watch a painting of a man and you will Notice that books are the spiritual ecstasies of mediaeval saints and the morbid confessions of modern sinners – watch a painting of a man and you will Notice philanthropists squander humanity

Blank Space XVI

a generation of spoiled Youth

who are fighting no great war across the pond

whose houses grow exponentially more luxurious

who are witnessing man’s fingers stretch towards outer space

whose lives will accumulate more years than any in history

who own possessions that metastasize at an immeasurable rate

whose access to one another is contained within their pocket

yet

who occupy the front of a domestic war

whose households are breaking into city blocks

who watch the hands of man recoil from inner space

whose life is epidemically mitigated from their years

who hold values society is diminishing at the rate of hourly broadcasts

whose communication with each other is lost and locked in a bottle at sea

Blank Space IX

the future may bear the key to temporal travel

unlocking a room walled with Consequences

yet

if the door can be opened

then the room can be rebuilt

using material derived from Consequential walls

as there are no others at hand

for preventing temporal travel from Consequentially altering the Past

prevents any prevention of Consequentially altering the Past

pass through the inferno and Reality will show you that obsolete prey may best deserve the precious bane – pass through the inferno and reality will show you a prince raise by merit to bad eminence – pass through the inferno and Reality will show you that all good is lost for evil must be your good – pass through the inferno and Reality will show you furnace flames that cast no light but illuminate sights of woe with darkness
