I wanted to fuck the world. I still want to fuck the world. To get close. To touch. I’ve been on my own in a world where ecstasy housed itself snugly and discreetly in my body. Who would meet this fury? The whores today are my compatriots. Dancers in the fire of the forbidden. It is a dangerous country. Not because sex is dangerous, but because sex has been relegated to the terrain of theft and murder.
