It's true that I have ridden an elephant,
but I have never ridden an elephant over
the mountains or into the darkness.
I am one of those who can look at maps all day long and convince myself that I've actually gone somewhere. For a brief time, anyway.
Now let's talk about shadows and monsters, if you have a spare moment....
I want to be a dog,
when I die--
a dog, a dog.
