The Seagulls, the Trawler, the Sardines, the Sea

Kids these days — so full of themselves, so goddamned cocksure, sad refractions of rap poseurs. And to what end? When Cantona was an asshole, he made you think; he inspired you with his dedication to something beyond himself, however delusional that pursuit might have been. Trumpeter, Roman gladiator, philosophe, the conductor of his own symphonies — in the wake of his infamous kung fu kick, he said: “When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea.” Ars longa, vita brevis.
