I went to a performance art show this weekend. Twice. It was interactive.
...I came and beheld the palace of my Sultan
it was full of roses, nothing but roses.
The crown and throne of the Sultan, His garden and walls
were roses, nothing but roses.
They buy roses, they sell roses,
They weigh and measure roses with roses
in a bazaar of roses, nothing but roses.
White and scarlet rose raised and paired together in one garden.
Ummi Sinan came to this dwelling of nightingales and roses, nothing but roses.
--Ummi Sinan, Turkish poet 11th century
