writin' and whatnot

Revolutionary Letter #23

A lack of faith is simply a lack of courage one who says 'I wish I could believe that' means simply

that he

is coward, is pleased

to be spectator, on this scene where there are no spectators

where all hands not actually working are working against

as they lie idle, folded in lap, or holding up newspapers

full of lies, or wrapped around steering wheel, on one more

pleasure trip
