On 3 January 1889,
Fifty years ago today,
Nietzsche succumbed to madness
on the Piazza Carlo Alberto in Turin,
throwing himself sobbing around the neck of a horse
that had been beaten,
then he collapsed;
when he came to again he believed he was

DIONYSUS

Or

CHRIST CRUCIFIED.

This occurrence should be commemorated
as a tragedy.
“When a living thing,”
said Zarathustra,
“commands itself,
it must atone for its commanding
and become
the judge, avenger, and

VICTIM

of its own laws.”

-G.B., 1939
