Ego, fear: consubstantial.

"Sense and Sensibility and iPod Eyelashes"

if it's not the moon
maybe it's a smudge
spiralling balloon
as beneath we trudge

let that light go by
if it's not the moon
other alibi
won't be begging soon

with such feints is strewn
journey to the tell
if it's not the moon
lures us · just as well

up there does not budge
what belies the tune
churned by ilka drudge
if it's not the moon

"There is a certain element of the detective novel in the Mallarméan enigma: an empty salon, a vase, a dark sea--what crime, what enormous misadventure is indicated by these clues?" --Alain Badiou, Being and Event (tr O Feltham, 2005)

"I travelled through my burning land and saw with my own eyes the pains of the victims, and heard with my own ears the scream of the bereaved and the orphans."
