A paradox is something that bears contradictory elements. Sometimes paradox is connected to irony. Here are some examples of qualities that may be somehow embodied, perhaps after discovering a sense of false dichotomy: fast and slow; small and large; light and heavy; young and old; airy and solid; strong and weak; strange and normal; beautiful and ugly; vain and humble; pleasurable and painful; cold and hot; rough and smooth; rainy and sunny; silent and loud; bitter and sweet; sunny and rainy; happy and sad; something and nothing; nowhere and everywhere.
The title alone describes their paradox:
1. Happy Monster
2. Beggar King
3. Cardboard Egomaniac
4. Old Baby
5. Happy Scrooge.
Excerpt From a Pageless Codex
A deaf midwife hears a morgue’s stone window opening shut as her white satin shadow waves frozen despite the black sun rising to dusk with a wingless dove flying inside out into a parched puddle reminiscing tomorrow’s threadless spool under a missing chandelier.
