from, Amongst the Trembling Apes
by Jarrad Ackert
Imprisoned by chemical-release and blind procreation, sex appears as the natural, desirable thing to do. To a mind, aware of its own fiction and enslavement, however, sex is transfigured into a disaster, an abomination. Paralyzed and consequentially celibate is the one who sees the act as a revolting trembling of bodies, sharing in the wealth of a myth – the myth of being someone, something outside of the meaningless mechanics of biological function. Even more disastrous are the horrors of reproduction – propagation of the void’s bastards; additional scar tissue of the Absolute (suffering).
I will remain paralyzed, a failure of flesh.
Amongst the Trembling Apes is Jarrad Ackert’s most recent book.
