"Envy is a monster greener than money's all-seeing eye."
"Sipping the wine of blood and ink and scabrous magniloquence."
"War room fantasies in a new age Dr. Strangelove reality."
"Memories of dead things and cigarettes in the dark."
"A stray dog dropped off to lick my own wounds."
"No one would even bat an eye."
"Time walks by my side, just as damaged as I."
