What safer consolation or protection can a citizen have than to know his private vice is the nation’s religion?
When I reach Trinidad where no one knows me I may be able to strike identity with the other person. But it was never possible here. I am always feeling terrified of being known; not because they really know you, but simply because their claim to knowledge is a concealed attempt to destroy you. That is what knowing means. As soon as they know you they will kill you, and thank God that's why they can't kill you. They can never know you. Sometimes I think the same thing will be true in Trinidad. The likenesses will meet and make merry, but they won't know you. They won't know the you that's hidden somewhere in the castle of your skin.
The droppings that fall from the arse of my imagination belong to you, if droppings of this sort are to your liking.
