"How clear can art be?" Salvador asked,
"when surrealism is the order-of-the-day,
the order of my dreams, and for sale
at the gallery down one block and over two."
"Persistence - persistence always forays
to visions we never knew were in us,
out of us, about us; That's believable."
"Gala says I use her for muse and of
course she is right, she is all ways right."
"There are elephants and chessboards
and fluid watch-hands with eggs to fly in
every direction. Ask me what they mean
and I'll throw it back at you. How do I
know what my dreams mean let alone yours,
but you may procure them for a pittance."
"Clearly, inscrutable is a word I like to
twirl in my mustache, for I only buy the
finest mustache wax, and THAT is inscrutable."
"Glass is to be seen through, a monocled eye
to the deeper dreams just under the surface.
Let us pay homage to form, then defenestrate it."
