Angels in fast motion

First you have the oral phase,
then the anal phase
and then the banal phase, right?

First you think
you're a very special individual.
You're different, more profound,
more spiritual than other people.

Then comes the banal phase.
Once you've lived that, you know
that you're no fucking better than
anybody else. You're expendable.
You're quite ordinary. You'll die,
you'll be buried, eaten by worms
be forgotten by posterity
like all other mortals out there.

Once you know that,
you've grown up.
