Today, he saw a pure Other.
Not just any Other. The Other who’d burn him alive; rather than kill him straight.
The Other to whom he is shit.
The Other to whom he is his Other.
And when two Others collide, shit’s let loose - if only in his silly mind.
Pure Others are his true test.
He walks on hot shit in their presence.
He wants to become the Other.
And when he doesn’t, he flits away to his flat-sanctuary.
