Narcissus-X Broods on Day of the Taxes

April 15: A sixth part of the quarter, beloved interval of the Philistine.

And Lear cried out, "I tax not you, you elements, with unkindness; / I never gave you kingdom, call'd you children, / You owe me no subscription."

At least something, somewhere, somehow, was not taxed: if only in the realms of dream summoned forth by the Bard of Avon.

But Narcissus-X taxed must be, and much taxed with regret that so much time is lost forever, collecting records, filling forms, filing financial facts. Time in which Narcissus-X could have traversed the charcoal-clouded vastness of Xanadu's dream.

But now the forms are gone, cast into the bureaucratic abyss from whence they came: and art may live again.
