Journals from the Land of Parparazad


Lt. Pistoff has gone away. Thought Iíd never see the day. Told myself Iíd celebrate. See him tomorrow in Time Shop, canít wait. Tried to keep the wound alive. Got stupid now I donít know whatís what. Thought Iíd go with sexual drive. Drained my mind. Lt. Pistoff! Lt. Pistoff! I hate you come back! Look at this here. I donít know itís weird. Fellas drinking their beer. Doesnít mean anything. I always want you back but you wait till I donít. Makes you real. Itís why I hate you. Then I look down and I want you back. I look at this, this in front of my eyes, I see the devastation of my mind. I need to hear you bark. Sets off a spark. Takes out the rhyme. Ruth writing his mother for the last time the way things are going now that you died. All the fellas are sad. No one knows how full everything isÖ without you. Itís really, really full. You wouldnít believe it. Itís so full itís just nothing. No one will ever know, but itís funny. I just twist the cap while the fellas stare. I donít care though, I like it, makes me feel like youíre there. Lt. Pistoff! Lt. Pistoff! Rise from the ground! Grow! Oh my god! No one will ever know. Butch and Vig and Stan and Cube, they all miss you olí boy. Itís great, I can just go Adam, it makes them full. The blasts though the blasts. Every little one. Get out my gun. Take my revenge. But revenge is only sweet when youíre there. Revenge is only sweet when itís revenge. God must be miserable. But now he has youÖ Lt. Pistoff! Lt. Pistoff! See you tomorrow! Itís all over here. Fellas think Iím a queer. Give them some beer. Fuck some shit up. Free Lenny mad. Thinks Iím my dad. Fellas are sad. Synchronous devastation sounds good. Logic harder. Not for you but twist cap further. Who cares, gives me the exercise. Bafflement in your eyes. Get out my gun itís all I know.

Frankie the Farmer


Sgt. Flash said heíd be back some day. He said the fear will be back. He said my body will be his once again. I worked at rebuilding my life every day, and stayed up listening for the door every night. I knew it could happen any time. I knew my work will be turned to ash. The harvest is better than itís been in years, but I can feel him coming around. I can feel him looking at me when I work the land, I can feel his lust, he wants the blood in my veins. He said my body is his possession. He said when I get ill heíll have to take extreme measures. He said donít work too hard and you wonít get ill. He said keep your blood pure.


Salvation Is Behind Me

When I see them on the street, when I see them in their cars, when I see them on a bus or in the mall or in my house, when I see them walking, running, jogging, sitting, in their business suits, jogging attire, winter coats, naked, there is just one thing I am thinking: all these people have behinds. I canít get over it. You look at their faces and you want to take them seriously, you get to know them and you think about their personality, but every last one of them has a behind. How can it be? Can it be true? I donít understand it. A beautiful woman tried to talk to me the other day but I had to turn away. I couldnít talk to her. I couldnít face her. She seemed really nice but I was too ashamed. I was ashamed for her sake. How could she so shamelessly walk aroundÖ sporting a behind? I canít deal with it. I saw a doctor and he pointed out that I too have a behind. Initially I was enraged. I stormed out of his office without another word. I took a long walk of shame back to my apartment, unable to make eye contact with any passerby. I barricaded my doors, I cursed god, I renounced him. I told myself that from now on I am a child of Satan. I refused to believe in a god that attached me to a behind. How could he? Why? I drank myself blind trying to escape the pain. All my life I had struggled with the question: how can I ever respect anyone with a behind? But now me? I myself too? I had lost all hope and desire to live. I was enveloped in darkness and saw no way out. I felt unclean and unworthy of His love. And yet he did it to me! And I was the one who felt humiliated! I thought Satan would show me the way out. I thought Satan would take away my shame. But I was wrong. I was mistaken. I was rash and foolish. And when I awakened from my drunken slumbers I was always still attached to a behind. Thatís when I realized this problem will never go away, and only He can give me the strength to get through each day. I must never question His reasons, for they would be beyond my comprehension, but I must remain assured that He had a good reason for doing it. I must remain assured His motives were pure. I still donít go out much. I still canít face them. I still struggle to accept myself. Iím too ashamed to buy toilet paper, so I donít eat much and try not to use my behind. After I pass gas I bathe. After I defecate I sit naked in the basement for 48 hours, until the filth crusts up and falls on its own, then I bathe 5 times in 5 different bathtubs I had installed, then replace the bathtubs and the floors, then bathe twice more in two different bathtubs, then replace them, then bathe once more. I refuse to be one of the sinners. I refuse to use my hands to do Satanís work. I will endure any hardship before inserting my hands into evil. I am a martyr and will be greatly rewarded. I sleep soundly through the night and awaken with the strength I need to face another day. I have seen into the darkness and have emerged stronger for it. I have journeyed to the underworld and can now face what I once thought unbearable. My soul is pure and does not have a behind. My doctor says I am very ill, but he does not speak to god. He uses his hand to clean his behind, then washes his hand with a bit of soap, then pulls up his pants and calls it a day. He disgusts me. I despise him and refuse to see him or take the pills he gives me. One day his judgment will come.


The Deranged Elephant

The asses are going to fart tomorrow. That is because they are going to violate me. Whenever they violate me they follow it up with a fart. The farting itself is a violation. They like to couple violation upon violation. They like to emasculate me. They tell me what to do and they fart. If I obey, they fart. If I refuse, they fart. I think they really like to fart. The asses will be farting in the coffee shop, theyíll be farting on the bus, theyíll be farting in the drug-shop, theyíll be farting on the sidewalk. Tomorrow is the day and I have to brace myself. Theyíll violate me and fart, I will obey and theyíll fart, and theyíll keep farting for a very long time. They made me feel like a man so that one day they can let it all out. They let me breathe clean air so that tomorrow they can fart and fart and fart.
