Interviewer: Why can’t you be alone without Yoko?
John Lennon:But I can be alone without Yoko, but I just have no wish to be. There’s no reason on earth why I should be alone without Yoko. There’s nothing more important than our relationship, nothing. And we dig being together all the time. Both of us could survive apart but what for? I’m not going to sacrifice love, real love for any whore or any friend or any business, because in the end you’re alone at night and neither of us want to be. and you can’t fill a bed with groupies. It doesn’t work. I don’t want to be a swinger. I’ve been through it all and nothing works better than to have someone you love hold you.”
“The things that we preceive as beautiful may be different, but the actual characteristics we ascribe to beautiful objects are similar. Think about it. When something strikes us as beautiful, it displays more presence and sharpness of shape and vividness of color, doesn’t it? It stands out. It shines. It seems almost iridescent compared to the dullness of other objects less attractive.”
“I stretched my arms towards the sky like blades of tall grass. The sun beat in between my shoulders like carnival drums. I sat still in hopes that it would help my wings grow. So then I would really be fly. And then she arrived. Like day break inside a railway tunnel. Like the new moon,like a diamond in the mines. Like high noon to a drunkard,sudden. She made my heart beat in a now-now time signature. Her skinny canvas for ultarviolet brushstrokes. She was the sun’s painting. She was a deep cognac color. Her eyes sparkled like lights along the new city. She lips pursed as if her breath was too sweet. And full for her mouth to hold. I said,”You are beautiful,distress of mathematics.” I said,”For you, I would peel open the clouds like new fruit.”And give you lightning and thunder as dowry I would make the sky shed all of its stars like rain. I would clasp the constellations around your waist. And I would make the heavens your cape. And they would be please to cover you. They would be pleased to cover you. May I please,cover you,please.”
