The praise of folly, as he went on, soared into a philosophy, and Philosophy herself became young, and catching the mad music of pleasure, wearing, one might fancy, her wine-stained robe and wreath of ivy, danced like a Bacchante over the hills of life, and mocked the slow Silenus for being sober. Facts fled before her like frightened forest things. Her white feet trod the huge press at which wise Omar sits, till the seething grape-juice rose round her bare limbs in waves of purple bubbles, or crawled in red foam over the vat's black, dripping, sloping sides.

  • Who are you?

  • Then there's a pair of us

  • Plinked coins onto a pigeon's head. The bird wielded me to the top of an indoor slope made of large slabs of cardboard or graham crackers jammed in among other things. I twirled in front of a three-way mirror, took a large styrofoam tube & molded it about my waist like a skirt which turned into bubble bath foam. I chased after a giant papier-mâché puppet down the slope as the pigeon flew overhead & rained coins onto our heads.
