Theater of Utter Charm Part 23

sometimes you have to look after your sanity and try to understand the laws of sequence where before and after absolutely must preexist perhaps consciousness cannot access its source but we're not automata and we've come a long way through lunacy and habit and clutching to the point where we have a fighting chance we try to figure out what goes on behind the scenery where they hammer and nail plausible billboards in a land of temptation where magnetic fields of want were crippling to man and beast their gyroscopes wobble as the revolutions peter out with psychic cannibalism as their last resort we attach ourselves to people we should attach ourselves to logic and then people with logic are all attached the audience sat in deliberate silence delivered his lines like a Trooper of Dawn if you can't assert domain and dominion over your own bleeping head then all I got to say is don't be unnaturally blind son then free to accept criticism even by people you hate genius is the new aristocracy bearing only echoes of times long gone swirling down the storm drains the reign of terror is about to end the only agency of change will obviously and necessarily become better data period and the adaptation factor is never absent it's our trump card without it feathers ruffle bones break this moment can be forgiving but the future is definitely not hope is what you feel when all other means fail ultimately or otherwise instigated by your best guess at the moment the trick is to discern between a temporary lack of inspiration and giving up we are here for a while and then poof we disappear darkness falling like a guillotine we artists must first understand our own insanity before we can understand the insanity that perpetually surrounds us and if he doesn't want to be crippled by deeply morose hissing vengeance he'll need to tie a rope to a tree on the bank before diving into the maelstrom haunted by his many mortalities the nemesis dream where you can't escape where self and self plus other and other all appear as separate matters of relevance all occurring in the nick of time more than a mock paradox for dramatic purposes it's simple we replace morality with aesthetics so it's a morass what else is new meanwhile hail the state of permanent apostasy and its manifold of immediate considerations about time and place and the hypnotic (to be continued) From "Theater of Utter Charm" Available on Amazon
