Since I don’t smoke, I decided to grow a mustache - it is better for the health. However, I always carried a jewel-studded cigarette case in which, instead of tobacco, were carefully placed several mustaches, Adolphe Menjou style. I offered them politely to my friends: “Mustache? Mustache? Mustache?” Nobody dared to touch them. This was my test regarding the sacred aspect of mustaches.

Artemis: Test regarding the sacred aspect of mustaches. :-/ Below: Adolphe Menjou :D
The bottom of the sea has come
And builded in my noiseless room
The fishes’ and the mermaids’ home,
Whose it is most, most hell to be
Out of the heavy-hanging sea
And in the thin, thin changeable air
Or unroom sleep some other where;
But play their coral violins
Where waters most lock music in:
The bottom of my room, the sea.
Full of voiceless curtaindeep
There mermaid somnambules come sleep
Where fluted half-lights show the way,
And there, there lost orchestras play
And down the many quarterlights come
To the dim mirth of my aquadrome:
The bottom of my sea, the room.
~Thomas Merton - from Crossportion’s Pastoral

The moon sets, the crows caw, hoar frost is in the air.
By the maples at the riverside
twinkles the light of the fishermen’s boats
as i take my troubled rest.
Outside the city of Soochow stands the Han Shan monastery
And at midnight there comes to me in my boat
the tolling of the temple bell
~ Zhang Ji, Night Mooring at Maple Bridge
