I watch you fry a lamb and
I want you to slam your hand on the element,
to slam your
hand on the element so
hard that when you jerk off you

so hard that I can set fire to your cock and

“My guess is that a lot of people reading this book know something personal about immersion. The experience of watching meaning change over time solely for yourself, depth being equal to the ease with which you get information, the ability to ‘read’ that information, the extent to which you can invest yourself in that information. Things you see, you can see over and over, because you love them. Love is best and most correct when you know something but you feel like you can never truly own it—no matter what, it is always outside of you.”

I think their particular mental imbalances coupled with the obstruction of their addiction was what made them deluded enough to be convinced they could pass as straight to acquaintances. What was occasionally supposed to be a quick round before hitting the bars would sometimes turn into extended spun-out conversations beneath the harsh kitchen fluorescent."
