Five Briefs / Memorable Fancies #1016

I’m stuck in strangeness – no way out – but everything has always seemed strange to me. So what would “out” be like?

In the market: prime cuts, eyes of varying values, tongue a precious part. Lady fingers are especially valued. “That was no lady, that was my dinner!” the cannibal-comic said.

I must be more important than the one I praise, or it wouldn’t be a compliment to receive such praise from me.

Had a murderous crime been committed that shocked so many people? But more important, had there been a loss of sensitivity here, of inclusiveness?

The new symphony would have made sense only later, retrospectively, when it was performed again. But there never was a second performance, because no one had understood the first.
