And from within my pain blood overflows! 7 +LZLY[PVU*OHV[PJ4V]LTLU[   O    In the final scope, rage divulges an outstanding coldness. As the scales of experience are increasingly angered, consciousness develops into an incendiary substance—its concentration, its manifesting, its hypercirculation—to the extent of an awful calming, the cataclysmic sway of its stillness. Such marks the crossroads at which fury ices itself, crystallized into a now remote, severed ecstasy. But what this coldness implies about the deserter is even far more telling: that the secret at the heart of this one is that it does not need to exist.

Thus the unearthly is nothing less than rampant deterritorialization and, eventually, the execution of the real, the visitation of a once-accursed past now becoming the dangerous moment—its untold threat and its unwanted burning. +LZLY[PVU*OHV[PJ4V]LTLU[   O    A line drawn in-between, signifying the great existential separation at stake, and the impending collision it warrants, this emergent literature brought ever forward by its one singular need: to overrun the hiding places, the thrones of false subjectivities, and impostor empires of being.

One forgets as one destroys, one consummates desertion through transience: such is the blackout period of rage, its supraconscious phase (to spare no chronicle). And in this assault against the tyranny of memory, now immune to the inheritance of time, the drive to mourning also fades from sight. Thus one contemplates the end of the remnant, the murder of the witness, so as to disown the engravings of testimony. This rising imaginary marks a force untied from history, palpable yet traceless, impact without imprint, leaving nothing in its wake but the outcome of a transfigured constellation.
