If it were up to me, the bible would begin: A man steps into a field... I'd forgotten what was in the background when you took the photo of me I wouldn't see until later. When I did, it was just a wall, and my smile was a mouthful of rocks. A little after it was clicked off the T.V. screen's light condensed down a drain. Even when the television had become an aquarium full of black water that last bright dot burned in my eye. On the back of my photo you wrote, This isn't you, and you were right, it no longer was.
Elegy in X Parts [Kafka said, A book]
Kafka said, A book must be an axe for the frozen sea inside us, which sounds great, but what good is an axe against a frozen sea? Perhaps this is why he said, while dying, Destroy everything. There is little comfort in knowing there are worse undertakings than killing yourself. Is it dangerous to say these things? I don't think so. Or I do. Either way, don't believe me. There is no refuge from yourself.
