From “Under the Sign of Anaximander” by Miquel de Palol


Under the Sign of Anaximander from our March Issue:

“With God dead, His attributes have been hacked into pieces and distributed among us in this carnage of existence. Performance: media stars. Power: bankers. Being in itself: Art. Where among these would you say that you fit?”

I pretended to be buried in deepest thought.

“In Art, maybe?”

They burst into laughter. “I told you so. Another total waste.”
