Still Life in Jacksonville…

*

The historical sense to which our New Europeans lay claim with such gusto

is derived from a centuries long mingling of classes and races.

*

Thanks to this mingling, the past of every form and mode of life

now streams unchecked into modern souls…

*

Our instincts run back in all directions simultaneously,

so that, we have ourselves become a sort of living chaos.

*

The spirit, again, immediately perceives an advantage to this cultural dilettantism.

*

Our pallettes can quite easily accommodate both Homer and Shakespeare

in equal measure and yet still revel in the clashing colours

such a combination inevitably produces.
