Rockers filled with fantasy

“And so it did happen like it could have been foreseen
The timeless explosion of fantasy’s dream
At the peak of the night, the king and the queen
Tumbled all down into pieces”

(Bob Dylan in Ballad in plain D)
Seraing (B)

Looking for the cook

“I went into a restaurant
Lookin’ for the cook
I told them I was the editor
Of a famous etiquette book
The waitress he was handsome
He wore a powder blue cape
I ordered some suzette, I said
“Could you please make that crepe”
Just then the whole kitchen exploded
From boilin’ fat
Food was flying everywhere
And I left without my hat”

(Bob Dylan in Bob Dylan’s 115th dream)

Talking in black and white

“At times I think there are no words
But these to tell what’s true
And there are no truths outside the Gates of Eden”

(Bob Dylan in Gates of Eden)

The eye that sees everything

"Who then knows,
Who can now declare
Whence cometh creation?
He the Primal One whose
Eye controlleth all things,
He alone doth know it,
Or perchance even 
He knoweth it not!"

(G. Holst in Creation)

After that happy meal

"Als Mahl beganns. Und ist ein Fest geworden, 
kaum weiß man wie. 
Die hohen Flammen flackten, die Stimmen schwirrten, 
wirre Lieder klirrten aus Glas und Glanz, 
und endlich aus den reifgewordnen Takten:
entsprang der Tanz. Und alle riß er hin."

(R.M. Rilke in Die Weise von Liebe und Tod des Cornets Christoph Rilke)
