Dirty Hands

Compulsive people maintain the delusion they will be satisfied when they get what they think they want. That’s why they perennially chase the high, or the feeling that comes when you hit the bull’s eye. In terms of brain chemistry, a certain level of serotonin creates a euphoria that can only be maintained with continuous infusions of sex, success or oxycontin. So-called normal people are not offended by meaninglessness and boredom and tend not to expect more than what they already have. In fact, many people want what they have; they’re only fear is that they will lose it. Alcoholism has been defined as a low-level spiritual search. Thus, apart brain waves, the question of God is unavoidable. Was the boy not able to stop washing his hands simply because he couldn’t get them clean? Les Main Sales is the title of the Sartre play.

read "Ultimate Rejection" by Francis Levy, The East Hampton Star

and listen to "Sympathy For the Devil by The Rolling Stones
