They are just shredded pieces; shells of souls, taken from the outside – anywhere – and then brought back in the inside, and sewn together again, as good as it gets;

The deepest understanding and the disgust are served together on the same plate; close your eyes, hold your breath and bite whatever comes to your mouth.
