the indolent

alleviate the conscience of

the contrite


.unconscious conscience.

Enforced confession

bypasses the conscience.


Repulsion In Red

Art work: Kelly Hartland 2009

The man

fearing his own heart

and tormented by the whispers there-in

became belligerent towards himself, then – others.

Eventually, perceiving treason within,

he murdered his own conscience.
