"You're obliged to pretend respect for people and institutions you think absurd. You live attached in a cowardly fashion to moral and social conventions you despise, condemn, and know lack all foundation. It is that permanent contradiction between your ideas and desires and all the dead formalities and vain pretenses of your civilization which makes you sad, troubled and unbalanced. In that intolerable conflict you lose all joy of life and all feeling of personality, because at every moment they suppress and restrain and check the free play of your powers. That'€™s the poisoned and mortal wound of the civilized world." - Octave Mirbeau

Purple Pineapples

once upon a time, there was a person.

the person like to paint themselves with purple pineapples.

every morning, the person dipped his brush in purple paint

pineapples danced on purple shores

and the person smiled

because it made him happy.

It's a beautiful blur
She lifts my soul
It's uncharted waters from here
But this is what ships were made for.

I am a flying into darkness, or is it peace?

I don't know what it means. I only know that today there is something wrong.

Always Listening

And I wonder, are they always listening? How long will it be until our rights are so smeared in Patriot Acts and the like that they become unrecognizable? How much of our freedom will we give to preserve our lives?

But is not life worthless without freedom?
