"...I expressed the soul of Moscow in a poem 'The City of God'...a 'hashish dream come true'. Every object of sense, from the...architecture of the city, to the art, ...the people, stings one to the soul, each an essential element of the supreme sacrament. At the same time, the reality of all these things, using the word in its grossest sense, consummates the marriage of the original antinomies which exist in one's mind between the ideal and the actual."
