The mirror has two or more faces

The last bit of an apparently vehement, lengthy conversation between two schizophrenic homeless people, which I overheard Sunday morning as I biked through Jackson Square:

“Bitch, you got to get yourself a mirror and talk that shit out.”

Which proves that (a) we’ve got some clever nutcases in the Quarter, and (b) sometimes just hearing the punch line is better than sitting through the whole joke.

    This is awesome. Madness is brilliant, dude. Antonin Artaud is worshipped for a reason. This is an wonderful quote. Lacan should have been so lucky to have recommended this as therapy. He coulda charged twice as much, and would have had half the kill rate.**

    **”kill rate”: defn. the number of suicides for each mental health “professional.”

    PS. Given that this interchange pushes the shit out of the main part of my browser, I’m happy not to explain what I wrote above … god damn people. Actual poo? What the fuck is up with that?
