"Nit Picking Trumpets of Iced Blue Vagaries" (1998)

"How the pieces begin is a hard thing to talk about. I like these pieces of plastic; I like the color of the plastic; I like that they’re inexpensive but gorgeous. And why are they so inexpensive and gorgeous compared to diamonds, which are so expensive and probably no more beautiful than these plastic things? I think these plastic things are stunningly beautiful. And then they’re so inexpensive."
