Favorite Quote:
"I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use -- silence, exile, and cunning.”
-James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

I am drunk with this passage of time
My epiphenic moment of clarity
Always sweeping away, always blurring

I hear the endless exchange of my contemporaries
They explain and exclaim
F*** you, f*** that, and f*** me

This repeating, thunderous vibration
Traded through a glorious orgy of wire
Which I own, which you own, which grows

Yes, and here I am
Gallivanting through the halls of inherited invention
Pondering my genitals in the mirror
