The monkey said to his master, “Give me a synonym for symbolism. Find a symbol in that.
The master replied to his pet, as if he’d not spoken, “The alphabet cartwheels strategically through my veins. I must eject my blood and inject the page. With colors. But all that goes in is my selfishness. I cannot commit my minutes to another character who exists nowhere but in the mind!”
Monkey: Exists no where but. But: synonym- except! Therefore if it didn’t exist it simply wouldn’t exist. But it does.
Master: Exactly my good friend! Why let it evolve into some existence having dialogue with others? How could I live myself if I were some creator of life?
Monkey: Yes, and all you need is a pen, paper, and things running around in your head.
Master: You’re right, indeed! I should just write the damn thing. We all end up in the hospital sooner or later.
