Example text

40 ANTIAESTHETICS Let me remind you of things that couldn't possibly be works of art that were works of art that proved to be works of art. Years ago if you had put the question to somebody do you think that the seat of a bicycle and the handlebars of a bicycle stuck together could be a work of art. How foolish can you be? How could that be a work of art? Handlebars of a bicycle and the seat of a bicycle. Nonsense. Picasso's great bull is a great work of art is just that. Just about anyone sensitive to art sees that that is a tremendous work.

Is there a cow that is this cow here? Christ knows! We can do no better than wonder and then spit out the thought. This may be done by grasping the extremity of the tongue between the left thumb and left forefinger pulling gently but firmly till the fleshy process protrudes sufficiently to allow a careful thorough cleansing of the exposed epithelium. This may be done by scraping the exposed surface with the prepared nails of the right hand. How the latter are prepared said the doorman may be left for another time.

The bull is being performed in New York we're in Atlanta. That doesn't matter. A piece of music doesn't have a spatio-temporal location. The bull isn't ever either here or there not even when it was being composed in Paris in 1919. A piece of music is an auditory pattern. An actual performance of a piece of music is a physical realization of a particular auditory pattern. Which auditory pattern is being given a physical realization here? Is it The bull or The cow? It sounds like The bull to me.
