Defending The Ramparts: A Soundtrack for Knifing a Perimeter

Jackie Westfall Mixtapery


Defending the Ramparts

“I form circles around me and holy boundaries; ever fewer ascend with me ever higher mountains: I build a mountain range out of ever holier mountains

But wherever ye would ascend with me, O my brethren, take care lest a parasite ascend with you!

A parasite: that is a reptile, a creeping, cringing reptile, that trieth to fatten on your infirm and sore places.

And this is its art: it divineth where ascending souls are weary, in your trouble and dejection, in your sensitive modesty, doth it build its loathsome nest,” Friedrich Nietzsche “Thus Spoke Zarathustra”
