Revelator Book 2 “The Hate Culture”… Excerpt….
"Peering from the window I see a city wrapped in a gloomy desperation. There are no clouds, just a gray sky and now the sun is coming up. There’s filth and mud and busses and taxis and drunkards. Smoke stacks that used to be cleaned by eight-year-old chimney sweeps in the nineteenth century. Businesses and row houses, theatres and tube stations that have evolved, burned down or changed owners over the centuries. Time is a malicious demon, it can be the ugliest of all realities. I can see the famous Oxford street intersecting with Tottenham Court road and I imagine Oscar Wilde in a hansom being pulled by an expensive black quarter horse, turning south and heading into Soho for a drink with Bosie sitting by his side laughing and chatting about the terrible play they just went a saw in the west end. They are captivated by one another, stimulated and spellbound, falling through the stages of a love that dare not speak its name. All the books I’ve read and all the history that envelops this city is overwhelming my heart, constructing my breath and I do believe that this will be the perfect jumping off place. I might as well lay my bones in a coliseum of legends. Nameless. Obscure.”
