XXXI. Not a MacGuffin

Extricating Richard

your petrochemical arms
13 May 1978

Richard is a quasi-militant left-handed vegetarian. A homosexual, he has turned his back on God and descended into darkness. He suffers frequently from pangs of cognitive dissonance and, intermittently, from existential dread. He consoles himself with folk musics, madness, and meditations on the hero path. In moments of despair he reverts to Ludditism and an infantile longing for a past that never was.

This is where he presumes to spit out the butt ends of his days and ways.
