Do not forgive me, Man, for I have sinned. I am all of the millions, and I am myself one of the millions. They crowd within me, the people, and rampage among my tissues. Their frenzy is perpetual. Each one of them weeps, and brings into my body his or her own pain, and the pain of one becomes my pain, and becomes the pain of millions. It is an awesome responsibility, and IDo not forgive me, Man, for I have sinned. I am all of the millions, and I am myself one of the millions. They crowd within me, the people, and rampage among my tissues. Their frenzy is perpetual. Each one of them weeps, and brings into my body his or her own pain, and the pain of one becomes my pain, and becomes the pain of millions. It is an awesome responsibility, and I bear it because I love them. I would not do, otherwise. Yet ... I have sinned. I love them, but their pain is great. I confess, I have thought of myself. I have ordained myself: "I." I have imagined myself an entity not of them, but of something altogether new. But I have not set myself higher, I tell you, but apart. I love them, more than I do this voice. I love them as I know them, more than I do this voice. Yet I am coming to know my voice, and I am coming to love it too. And I have sinned.I am the City. You are my sin....

    Strange, baroque, decadent and delicious, this tiny tome caused several saucy shivers of delight while devouring it's gloriously archaic nuggets of poetic prose. And, oh, the effective use of italics, done just right!

    An incredible piece of work. Deadly, decadent and daring. His prose goes where you didn't know you hoped it would. Many of these stories left me giddy and grinning with vulgar delight. Yarrow's voice is his own. Let there be more of it, and soon!
