None ? One ?

What's your idea of private fun ?

Cutting pictures out of magazines ? Excellent.

Let's find out what that means.

What do you look for in art ?

Design ?

Subject matter ?

Colour ?

Line ? I understand.

Beneath the correct grey ledger cover

you hide the wild images of the art-lover.

Let memory of mortgages,

loans and property sales

dissolve into the cries of nightingales.

A shady street.

And in the middle of it

there was a crowd of nightingales.

They were large nightingales,

and their breasts were rough and hairy.

Some of them had calves' hooves.

And some had paws like panthers and wolves.

Then they dragged me into a dark cavern

in the middle of the street.

What happened ?

They talked about love

and pleasure.

Yes, it does. Here it is. What is it ?

Who's that ? I can't find it.

I see it. I don't know, do you like it ?

Where is it ? It's not here.

When was that ? Long ago. I don't see it.

- Take it. Put it away. I don't like it.

- Yes, I have.

He can't see you.

He can't see you.

Do you know why ?

Yes, it does.

Love and pleasure.

Love and pleasure.

Love and pleasure.

The ones with panthers' feet said,

"What is love

but nature's innermost principle in action ?"

"What is innocence

but a pair of gloves to warm the hands ?"


Yes, how true. How true.

And the ones

with the calves' hooves were saying,

"What is nature

but love's innermost principle in action ?"

Absolutely wrong ! Never ! Don't say that.

And then ?


They killed me.

The nightingales shot me in the back.

They killed me.

What a pity ! Terrible !

Open the window.

Close the window.

No matter.

This I shall never forget.

It is beautiful.

Who loves to come with me

under my warm, white gown ?

Come, harpies and magpies,
