The argument:

The animal that is most vulnerable is usually the most cruel 
It is impossible to separate it from what it remembers

It’s answer:

Desperation is only interesting if it remains unfulfilled sometimes the aim is just tenderness
I will not train myself to love this shit
I refuse to love this shit

The first contention:

Listing to Lil wayne‘s “love me”
I am an agent of
I daydream about merging my body with absence
Desire restrains me
Embalmed vision of apocalypse
Under the grey horizon of the day there r your eyes
Which are shimmering conglomerates of volcanic dust
Oh friendly light
Rooted in the ardent flesh of the dirt

It’s end:

The sky is strangled in lasso soft stars
God is the slow recovery of lost light

The prime directive of fantasy is aftermath

The only thing left is to be touched, entangled, contaminated, to bound up in your shit
