Why go further? One might conceivably rectify the rhythm

KORA IN Hell : I MPROVISATIONS

II, 1

Why go further? One might conceivably rectify the rhythm, study all out and arrive at the perfection of a tiger lily or a china doorknob. One might lift all out of the ruck, be a worthy successor to — the man in the moon. Instead of breaking the back of a willing phrase why not try to follow the wheel through — approach death at a walk, take in all the scenery. There's as much reason one way as the other and then — one never knows — perhaps we'll bring back Euridice — this time!
