Moonscape Go, Home! Moonscape

Like a fool, I fell in love with you,

Eric Clapton sang, riffing on a Persian myth, a boy who went mad when the girl he’d loved all his life was married to another, parallelling the singer’s own romantic entanglement, with a moon princess promised to a volcano back home.

Layla, they got you on your knees,
Layla, I’m begging, darling, please,
Layla, darling, don’t appease your fire gods

From Go, Mutants, p. 96
