Caesar has said: ‘Bring him to the Grove of Apollo; bind him to the trunk of the most beautiful of laurels; then unleash against his naked body all your arrows until you have emptied your quivers’….Fear not! Weep not! But be intoxicated, intoxicated with blood, as in battle. Aim closely. I am the Target. From the depths, from the depths I call forth your terrible love.
Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian, Gabriele D'Annunzio
