We all have "dark sides", black thoughts, anxieties and unknown inner territories to explore, we must evoke them, know them, pull them out, to be able to dominate them and not simply be guided along illusory paths that lead only to perennial dissatisfaction.

To intimate outfits, I prefer torn stockings.

I prefer worn sneakers to high heels.

To a clean face, I prefer black, runny make-up.

To eternal bliss, I prefer a second, only, of damnation.

Poetry by Francesco Ciurleo from Cursed Fragments
