    **************PLEASE READ SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT BELOW******************

    To all Customer outside Canada and U.S.A

    We use U.P.S. as a worldwide shipping service.
    Some customers have mentioned having to pay customs and duty charges upon delivery of package. Although we are sad to hear of these charges, we have no way of knowing or controlling these charges. We had to go with UPS tracked packages because in the last year (using Canada post) hundreds of our packages never made it to destination and we can't afford to replace the items and pay for postage again.

    One of the side effects of UPS is that its easy for customs of your country to charge duties.

    On the other hand we do have distribution in Europe through shinybeast.nl in the Netherlands and hhv.de in Germany so you can order direct from them and save the international postage charges and possible customs fees.

    once again, sorry for the trouble and thanks for understanding

    **************PLEASE READ SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT BELOW ABOUT BRAZIL******************


    We no longer ship to Brazil.
    If you live in Brazil and purchase on this page, we will automatically cancel order and refund you. If you purchase something and give us an alternate address somewhere in the U.S.A., we will accept and ship your order

Dreaming of enhanced feelings Words with no loss of meaning Known limits shall give away Fresh apples that won’t decay Breathing craft and will Sun pursues eternal extols Rotating spheres, shifting poles Deposed kings and queens Against new competing machines Standing marveled… in awe Massive tides carefully smooth domain(s) Nature reveals itself to mankind again Cirrhosis removed from patient men Who dare… come back flesh and bone To reclaim the world as their own
2.
Like an alchemist or an engineer I used to think of potions in my diaries To improve the flow of my inner gear Speeding up my nature inquiries Moulded the vision I had of our sphere Through meditation and observation A social fabric tangible and clear My disembodied thoughts in station Knowing you I had a feeling of indulging your tonic Holding you It made me drift from my prior logic Knowing you I had a feeling of indulging your tonic Holding you It made me drift from my prior logic Extend the scope of my findings Classifying them; a scattered thread Scouted for more despite my failing tidings A mere haul for the freight of my head Reached the threshold of my wit Where the whole seems badly heated And judgements of value aren’t fit I realized this spring was depleted Knowing you I had a feeling of indulging your tonic Holding you It made me drift from my prior logic Knowing you I had a feeling of indulging your tonic Holding you It made me drift from my prior logic
3.
I have these thoughts going on in my head My hopes are placed in some future ahead My finite means tune the world to its will My higher verb is forever fulfilled I contemplate this immortal outcome A timeless trace of future times to come I know I’m more than the span my life I know I’m more than my own local strife If I live old To see my grey days My heart will stay true - and forever young This minute of gold I won’t let it daze Catching the fleeing moment bid it remain If I live old To see my grey days My heart will stay true - and forever young This minute of gold I won’t let it daze Catching the fleeing moment bid it remain
4.
This night my sole appeal I have a claim to your zeit Foresaw this ideal How would it feel right Hold my verb for true Trust we’re both kin Saw myself through you Past both flesh and skin May this imprudent plea Reach all created spheres My finite self dares agree With the cyclic gears May this imprudent plea Reach all created spheres My finite self dares agree With the cyclic gears Formed to nature’s will I ought to venture still My core systoles Cause boundless diastoles My transmuted self Orbits divine spheres Shadows creating cells Suits my nature here May this imprudent plea Reach all created spheres My finite self dares agree With the cyclic gears May this imprudent plea Reach all created spheres My finite self dares agree With the cyclic gears

Status: cold Eager inclinations Status: old Cumulus frustrations Status: near Witness your fate bud Status: sphere Looping my blue blood Prospect: wait Still thirsty for more Prospect: faith As my nature soars Prospect: none Hold to the few I own Prospect: one For ever unknown If you ever wonder Men are still near their system In a somnolent condition Waiting for a turn If you ever wonder Men are still near their system In a somnolent condition Waiting for a turn System: slash Tissues crack System: ash Geist hold back System: sealed Widen soul System: healed Guide new whole

I have encountered in my course Many open-minded folks And often, they would friend The journey, but not its end Against the scholar disgrace Too abstract for their taste They’d rather think body and mind A whole stoutly combined A cerebral life An endless strife Sleepless pursuits Nature’s prized truths A cerebral life An endless strife Sleepless pursuits Nature’s prized truths I noticed their despair None were truly aware The sacrifice implied Mistakenly applied Reminding me asceticism A self-refusing idealism That someone should pursue An endless strive for truth A cerebral life An endless strife Sleepless pursuits Nature’s prized truths A cerebral life An endless strife Sleepless pursuits Nature’s prized truths

My sight shall reach past the ruthless dunes A solitary raven as my sole mate Whose intentions towards me I allow myself to doubt As everyone here is by their own Small unfortunate seeds champion Against an unwilling stormy climate Where venomous predators luxuriate I therefore brace myself While I have my last sip I’ve been on many traveling caravans With experienced and spirited folks We kept our eyes vigilant For danger preys each turn I can’t afford to let them down I am now one in this vast wasteland My leather boots burn my weary feet Meditating my next crucial move Disdaining the liquid salt on my eyebrows My intentions will prevail
10.
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis. Te decet hymnus, Deus, in Sion, et tibi reddetur votum in Jerusalem. Exaudi orationem meam, ad te omnis care veniet. Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.

What is it to be a man? Is it to be romantic? Fueling its own nostalgia With dreams of death in battle Submitting its body to hard privations Gaining the curse of martyrdom Leaving this world in a blind and passionate fashion In the arms of a consuming mistress Stupidly jumping off the schlafen berg Dying on a piano, of an unexpected but inevitable sickness With a still dripping quill in the left hand Depicting unbalanced emotions in sheet music A deforming lens Aimed at a small fraction of the human catalogue Or, in the case of our contemporaries Depicting a long over exploited duality between good and evil As if the choice was a puzzling dilemma Attacking a God, killed over three centuries ago Counter facing the camera you borrowed money to pay for Implying references to esoteric Delphies Creating a non existing mystery around oneself What is it to be a woman? Being sad on a beach, A long monologue glorifying impossible loves Smoking cigarettes with boredom Enacting its own death in a car accident Maybe quit it all at 27 Impressing some naive teenagers Who can’t but think that suffering is deep Clearly, there must be some other themes Who please both to mind and body While petitioning for genius and greatness Maybe give a listen to Fauré and Bach To the Greeks, Mill, and ironically, the great Goethe They are all brilliant men who worked hard … Still, they can’t be placed above manly affairs Because, concerning those, no one ever saw nor heard They remain interesting as photographs Which depict some of many human features
