    • Beauty is always doomed. "The evil and armed draw near." Homo sap with his weapons, his time, his insatiable greed, and ignorance so hideous it can never see its own face."Justlet me club down some seal pups, cut an Injun's hands off, bum a Nigra's balls off and watch 'em pop, then we'll all feel a lot better." These are unsightly tricks. "Whaddaya think this is, a beauty contest?" A lemur frisks toward the man, and he slashes it viciously, leaves it bleeding, sobbing, dying. ''Try and bite me, will you . . . fucking animals!" Man was born in time. He lives and dies in time. Wherever he goes, he takes time with him and imposes time.
