MOTHER

    Summer wasn’t there yet but that day the air smelled hot and sticky. The traffic was congested and my uncle’s van followed the cars in front squeezing its massive presence trough the last miles before the airport. The cabin was silent.

Please, let the crazy run the asylum!

Who cannot smile, shouldn’t cry. Just be still for a moment and let the lips follow their natural flow. It will end up in a smirk eventually and then, by mid-November, their movement will be just fucking hysterical. And the noise. And the abdominal spasm. Laughter. Unstoppable! A ravenous laughter that would encompass every remaining second.

In this fine first decade and a half of the 21st century, we, the dwellers of the empire have reached a point beyond absurdity. We are just untreatably insane. Dizzy. Continuously. And to blame is the fucking Earth who keeps spinning us until we cannot distinguish between our rectum and our reason.

People are still talking to the invisible man in the sky who guides their life to the trigger. Freedom means the right to kill. That’s our sudden pursuit of happiness: Nuke’em all! If that’s not possible, just build fences, enslave them through the modern jail system and dehumanize everyone via physical and economical torture! Empathy has a pejorative connotation and hate is the new soup the jour. Everyday.
