Inspired by Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment, Lies and Hypocrisy uses a crime style to explore the deeper emotional landscape of guilt. In particular, Mel Vil adopts the physiological analogy of the immune system to portray the unique character of the protagonist Sammy.

Did we agree these words exist
That they describe our common life An argument that slipped my mind A spacetime freed from my orbit
Conflicting opinions generate heat
Friction erodes our platonic consensus Valence levels require one or the other But for that to happen bonds break
Releasing vast amounts of loose energy
New worlds are created dialectically Histories evolve into mutual exclusivity Our will and our ability fail generally
Having once taken up the mantel
We stand looking around us now The floor is littered with seeds Shoots and hotbeds swallow us whole
Fragile components face the elements
Hence we’re susceptible to setbacks Such as this looping positive feedback Currently centrifuging the love we had. Like this: Like Loading...
Hard to say or measure
But knowing matters Requires a certain state Of being possessed
Removed times over
Stretching fog thin Grasping all context Breathing rather deeply
Time, distance and closure
Wins, losses, ties Retreat, withdraw, resign But yield all data
Crunch this vocal model
Cull extraneous entries Rationalise into dust A spacetime line of fit
What’s best however
Is to filter all filters Assume a warped state But believe all senses
Shift, tilt and crunch
Twist, manipulate, contrive Accept probable falsehoods Foster pristine values

Energy is hardly in decline
But by living together We harness its density Organise into nutshells
Stocking into storepiles
Preparing for winter Our defensive strategy A symbiosis with life
Proportional to quantity Negentropically sound Annihilating chaos
Yellow and orange harmony
Accentuates the order The absence of force Universally meticulous
In pursuing higher function
Unlocking potential Flooding the mind-body With ever new chemicals
As yet undocumented
A unique chemistry set With complimentary ducts Blending and filtering drugs
Our body has yet to reveal
All of its secrets unknown By toning down hatred Dissolving ideas of hierarchy Like this: Like Loading...
Only broken childless shells
Wielding power impotently Basking in neuro-chemical joy Are yellow-bellied hoarders
Whose close circles shrivel
May never return to Earth To join the common pursuit Of those so humble pleasures
Leaving a choice:
patria o muerte Enlightenment or homeland The awakening of all, for all Smoke entering the void
Letters appearing on the page
The drafting of new ideals Bricks of a political economy Torrential showers of parallels
Similar to a clock dial
Caught in intra-perspective Half prescriptive, half not A face emerges in oils
Abiding by customs, yes
But central planning also Failing cores meltdown Bringing ideas with them Like this: Like Loading...
