Descriptive Accuracy Doesn't Equate to Pliable Feasibility
Why is it that we fool ourselves into thinking that approaching a comprehensive and exhausting pronunciation of exactly what it is that we suffer from might in turn script a policy of prescriptive highlights and blow outs? (What is it that the salon in our heads offers us half off? Decomposed rodenticide laced corpses?!)
Okay, side point.
Main point: why the fuck do we think that once we've got a handle on it that the handle will allow us to manipulate it? At all? Why is it that we're just as mindlessly obsessed with rationalizing all of our actions to the cohorts of people who are forced to be friends?
Here's my secret. Gossip is relentlessly pointless when you are not part of the circle. It holds negative weight.
And still. And still, we ascribe endless loops and call them intentional meanderings, with a cross here and a supplication there, and we expect people to believe us; we expect them to capitulate to our own idolized notions of reason, however corrupt and obsequiously selfish.
I don't even know where life exists anymore.
