Chapter 7: Mesmeric Revelation

Van Gogh writing his brother for paints
Hemingway testing his shotgun
Celine going broke as a doctor of medicine
the impossibility of being human
Shakespeare a plagiarist
Beethoven with a horn stuck into his head against deafness
the impossibility the impossibility
Nietzsche gone totally mad
the impossibility of being human

these punks
these cowards
these champions
these mad dogs of glory
moving this little bit of light toward us
impossibly.
—  Charles Bukowski, Beasts Bounding Through Time (1986)
