ABOUT ETERNAL FALLS AND PHOENIXES (GENESIS)

The water stands their weightshipoffoolsJoel-Peter-Witkin

being the path of two big ships

and the sins produced on them

 

Although they sail apart from each other

they head towards the same (no) place

They could barely exist without one another

 

The ship of society is neat

Its crew impeccably dressed

and greetings being said all the time

 

The ship of fools is dirty

Drunk people and prostitutes laying asleep

together with the body fluids that testify last night’s activities

 

If it was possible to look from another ship on the ocean people would be puzzled

by the fact that there are more evidences on the ship of fools

than there is people to produce them

People on the ship of fools know exactly where the evidences came from

People on the ship of society pretend they don’t see

distinguished and illustrious crew members

departing in the middle of the night in small boats

rowing towards the ship of fools

 

The water stands their weight

being the path of two big ships

and the sins produced on them

 

Although they sail apart from each other

they head towards the same (no) place

They could barely exist without one another

 

One boat is the explanation for the other

and both are the reason of their same ultimate doom
