The Holy

the perfect human
created by people
Claudia Schiffer

never perfect

only speculate
not tangible
an image
a comfort zone

de-script-ions (theories)

Heroic, tragic, conception,
And love, lots of love,
And chances, lots of taking chances,

On this self-grading pop quiz,
I get an F,
Baudelaire, Ginsberg, Schopenhauer get A's
The human condition is absurd.
