cut up backup tapes

the cut up words of William S. Burroughs and John McAfee

From symbiosis to parasitism

The odyssey Sam and I have been on

a short step did not begin after the death of Mr Faull

The word is now a virus.

it began on October 15 this year,

an aborted raid by the police of San Pedro and Belize City.

Since that time

Victimless crimes are the lifeline

we have been on and off the run from the RIGHT virus.

Since April of last year the Belizean government

has been trying to level charge after charge against me,

all of them groundless,

the right to mind one’s own business is recognized

the whole shit disposition

none of them sticking

is untenable and Hell hath no vociferous fury than

The reason I avoided the authorities

an endangered parasite.

I believe then, and I believe even stronger now,

the intent to question me

Modern man has lost the option of silence

nothing to do with Mr Faull’s murder

And there is a growing recognition,

I simply would like to live comfortably day by day,

even in official quarters, that victimless crimes

fish, swim, enjoy my declining years,

My long-term plan was simply to get away from Belize,

think, and decide

should be removed from the books

subject to minimal penalties

I took drugs constantly, 24 hours of the day.

Because I’m creating an imaginary — it’s always imaginary — world

I took them for years and years.

I was the worst drug abuser on the planet

in which I would like to live.
