To say I had really become Vegetable Man: ten years of rigorous vegetarian diet, a decade of strenuous militancy in defence of animals, so becoming the favourite of every type of fauna, with the blessing of all the varieties of flora. Then all of a sudden my ascent into Leo roared. From the aeons of some distant astral conjunction the metals of Mars were rumbling. One was expecting flesh, the other craved blood; both were shouting for chaos and disorder. Now, after a strict carnivorous phase, the Vegetable Man that was in me was reawakened. More dominant than Leo, more destructive than Mars, having the resemblance of Syd Barrett and thousands of different voices, enclosed in weird discs of chlorophyll.
