THE NEW DISEASE CAME. I LEARN THAT TIME DOES NOT HEAL. EVERYTHING GETS WORSE WITH DAYS. I HAVE SPOTS LIKE A DOG. I COUGH AND CANNOT TURN MY HEAD. I CONSIDER SLEEPING WITH PEOPLE I DO NOT LIKE. I NEED TO LIE BACK TO FRONT WITH SOMEONE WHO ADORES ME. I WILL THINK MORE BEFORE I CANNOT. I LOVE MY MIND WHEN IT IS FUCKING THE CRACKS OF EVENTS. I WANT TO TELL YOU WHAT I KNOW IN CASE IT IS OF USE. I WANT TO GO TO THE FUTURE PLEASE.
"Your body told me in a dream it’s never been afraid of anything."

Teorema, Pier Paolo Pasolini, 1968
"It is difficult not to feel obliged to participate in the public debate and commit oneself politically, but I don’t know anything about these kind of things. I’m still trying to figure out the difference between comedy and tragedy. I’m the last person to ask about right and wrong."
"A man takes his sadness down to the river and throws it in the river
but then he’s still left
with the river,
A man takes his sadness and throws it away but then he’s still left
with his hands."
