Freddie Mercury, “His Holy Greatness King Frederick of Mercury and the Entire Universe of Everything Awesome”
Sea of Cleverness, Sea of Nectar, Sea of Fecundity, Sea of the Edge, Sea that has become known. These are some of the seas on the moon, the mercurial moon. Freddie Mercury was a changeable sea of a performer; he once insisted, “Excess is part of my nature. Dullness is a disease. I really need danger and excitement. I’m never scared of putting myself out on a limb.”
They say I got a lot of water on my brain. Queen of lunar excess, his voice and persona knew that the sky had no ceiling. Up, up, up to the moon: perhaps he is there now — ever still the quicksilver queer genius.
