A strip of a bra. A cot of underwear. The wire is the only witness of two suicides. A male! A female! A genderless animal (it!)! Customs! Witchcraft! Expurgation! Government! All this nonsense! Hypnotism… Death, Death n’ death with materials! Murder! Murder! Murder! No rally! No protest! Behave like all three stupid monkeys! Shameless hypocrisies! Go the hell! Piss! Stools! Vomit! False! False! False! Fcuk! All these under authorities! Materialized under an obsolete altar!
