Είμαι ένα από εκείνα τα τέρατα που μισείς. Εκείνα που στον καθωσπρεπισμό της κοινής γνώμης κρεμάνε κουδούνια. Αυτά τα τέρατα μάτια μου δεν τα αγαπά κανείς. Δε τα φροντίζει. Δε τα λογαριάζει. Αντί ένα καλό λόγο, παίρνουν χολή. Τους τρίβουν το κεφάλι πάνω από τα ξερατά της ηθικής. Βλέπεις αν κάποτε υπήρχε μια στάλα καλό μέσα μου φρόντισαν να μου τη ρουφήξουν.
