Seizure by Song

after hours of an uncomfortable oscillating rigidity and laxity of temperament
the back and forth in his mind about whether the move was right and that was to be the night…
he finally gathered the courage and broached the subject he had been avoiding all along that evening

and once he got started, the words flowed out of him with diluvial effect
drowning all other noises about the room and defying Cicero’s view that ‘war is contention by force’. this was a declaration of war, yes. but no force, all conviction – judging by the empirical evidence he was giving to support his argument

sensing that his vested power was unchallenged, he proceeded to execute the self-coup
