Fuck Introspection

Fuck introspection when it sounds so corny
in the cold light of following days - you cannot
edit honesty that is still tuned to the sow's ear -
so the idea is to keep the misinformation going full
blast and writing on the edge of meaning
as a camouflage, a secret visible only to the
trained eye of a fellow con. It is like a political act,
seriousness and sincerity no more than the sham
of how it sounds; and if that isn't satisfying enough,
shit on the paper and leave your honest smudge,
but be prepared for the probing questions and
analysis of what you thought was an open life.
That lack of introspection could in time prove to be
the one and only shallow cut of the writer's knife.
