“If we look long and hard enough into the mirror, we’ll see the ghosts that our memories keep alive. After all, we’re just ghosts here too, noting more, nothing less. Do the memories that haunt us always boil down to a matter of benevolence? I think not.”
— June Gloom, The Gray Zone

The Pajamas — Photograph by Mia Pharaoh



We stood at the furthest edge of night
Eyes searched for a crack in the sky
The other side: Heaven

While God looked on
The shallow dug their own graves
Cowards took the easy way
Bullets and Cyanide

Was the race won, or was it the war?


“We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”

“Come on let’s kick it up a notch. Tighter, is that good? We’ve had plenty of pleasure, now how about a little pain between friends; it’s all about balance. Remember what they say about pain, “no pain, no gain”. While we wait for the onset of discomfort and bad feelings to take hold, we can guzzle plenty of water, scoring big time on Hydrogen, making like the perfect fractal finding our way to infinity and back, let’s do the math. If you’re not up for that, we can always put on our foil hats, meditate and hope to reach Nirvana.”
