make it your own,

 

it's just sad.

'...some of my

 

most neurotically

 

fierce bitterness

 

is the result

 

of realizing

 

how untrue 

 

people have become...

 

I must say

 

I don't particularly

 

approve of forgetting

 

the facts of

 

life and death

 

in an orgy

 

of intellectual

 

pseudo-synthesis.'
