it is getting old to even think about the pandemic

“To be is to do”—Socrates.
“To do is to be”—Jean-Paul Sartre.
“Do be do be do”—Frank Sinatra.

Kurt Vonnegut, Deadeye Dick, 1982

there is neither do nor be now, only keeping on
but maybe literature will help

Mistah Kurtz-he dead
            A penny for the Old Guy

after all, books are worlds (within worlds, just you read 1001 nights)

I want the men around me to be fat, healthy-looking men who sleep at night.

Shakespeare, Julius Caesar

.. but there are never enough fat men around when you need them

“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars/ But in ourselves.”


not helpful either — the blame can be dispersed like water from a hose
or not spread at all
btw. do you wear masks?

So, Kurtz is dead, Caesar is dead and still the world goes on spinning

carry on.
