"The saint maintains his piety through the graphic imagination of other people’s vices. We thank him for it. The saint’s impossible perfection allows us to go on being gargoyles while keeping our faith alive. We admire him for it. The saint’s silence covers far more than our interpretations of it."
"Electronic Nocturne The TV goes dead, killing all the newscasters. Go, loud satraps of the night, leave us alone with darkness and ourselves."
