Self Hangman

Bill Boethius 19 June 2012 · Self Hangman [scratchboard] Done with Nietzsche's poem in mind: "Now lonely to me and thee/ Twofold in thine own knowledge/ 'Mid a hundred mirrors/ False to thyself/ 'Mid a hundred memories/ Uncertain and weary from every wound/ shivering at every frost/ Throttled in thine own noose/ Self-knower/ Self-hangman!" [Amongst Birds of Prey]
