Disconnection rarely has to be forced. Connections require real work. The self needs true connections to understand the purpose of life. Without these inner tubes of bloodstreams there is no interest in the self. If enough self-interest occurs the potential for success multiplies according to the agreed upon LIBOR rates. Believing in the selfie is one way of creating interest. A selfie is a mirror to the soul shared online and commented upon. The internet is a place of simultaneous love, lust, and longing. Once the lust and longing are stripped away it leaves the bare barren wasteland of the heart pulsing furiously in a furious flamenco.
Hedonism is one way to get the heart pumping. Sex involves getting the body into tip-top shape. Devotion is theoretically part of sex. In practice devotion does not dictate the sex-having or the sex-giving. Attraction relies less on devotion. Gratitude rarely comes up in terms of the trades of affection, affection for affection. Not all affection trades are equal. Balance is not something that comes up in relationships. Often affection is a physical thing with different value systems. Hugs are the cheapest forms of affection. Empty hugs lack empathy. Cuddles mean commitment. When two people cuddle they are destined to be together for at least a number of minutes. Heart damage can be cured given the right amount of attention.
One night stands mean that chairs are unnecessary. A morning breakfast after a one night stand is a lonely one. Typically one night stands require a bed and the covers of darkness. Strangely artists are big into the one night stand as they require little planning. Weather leaks out of artists during one night stands. Handfuls of this leak can be used for future work. Unfortunately few major pieces of art are birthed out of this activity. Instead poetry tries to capture it. By the time any of it gets written down it is much too late.
Presentation for an artist is a must. The more off-putting or inaccessible an artist is, the more interesting their work becomes. If somebody knows everything about their favorite artist some of the magic is lost. Entertainment works in reverse to knowledge. Less knowledge about the background keeps things exciting. Randomness is the opposite of control. Keeping things unpredictable can become predictable if overused. After too many twist endings it is good to occasionally visit the mundane, the most realistic conclusion. Though reality can be disappointing seeing it in art can make everything feel more reassuring.
A mouth’s filth is most assuring. Nobody has a clean mouth. Living in filth is underrated. There is great pleasure to be had in the disgusting side benefits of filth. Sex is filth. Love can be filthy too. Repulsion in the right amounts can be an alluring thing. Defiance, a rebel who doesn’t follow the rules, that is the definition of allure. Spending too much time in defiance can be tiresome. Life fails to give ample rewards to defiance. Most defiant individuals lack the patience to see the revolution. Hope is never enough. The need for acceptance is far too strong. It is all too easy to simply give up, to decide to go with the flow. Following the currents, the trends, is much easier than setting them.
Likes come from afar. Approval is rarely given in person. Online presences collect approval using it as justification for real life decisions. Everyone gets the same vote with different levels of weight. This is reality. Reality is an election that has no winners only lesser losers.
