Snippets 76

Snippets 76
Demon Box-Ken Kesey

Flaws previously shrouded now lay naked as knife wounds. I saw the marks of weakness, and wore everywhere I turned, within and without. I saw it in the spoiled, macho grins of the men and in the calculating green eyes of the women. I saw it in the half-grown greed at the barbecue, with kids fighting for the choicest pieces only to leave them half eaten in the sawdust. It was in the worn-out banter at the beer keg and the insincere singing of old favorites around the guitar. (187)
