"Oh, reason, reason, yesterday’s flimsy ghost! – I had already expelled you from my dreams, here I am on the verge of seeing them couple with apparent realities: this place is filled with my self. Reason vainly strives to have me denounce the dictatorship of sensuality.

Enter, Madame, my body is your crown and scepter. I stroke my delirium like a pretty horse."

 - Louis Aragon (The Paris Peasant)

Picture: "The Enchantress" by Heinrich Lossow (1868).
