I want the world to know what 
exactly it is that I demand 
of other people. I demand that
they are honest about who 
they are and I demand that they
tell me if they love me or
not. This is the test I use to
determine if someone is real
or not. I shock them into 
submission with my old blood
wounds. “Before a Suicide”,
before anything else, is a 
shock piece. I wanted to write
it under a pseudonym but
never had the courage or the
ingenuity to follow it through.
