Make an appointment to empty yourself. Write the name “Klaus Nomi” but do not say it. Convince yourself Heaven exists but no one else knows it. Delete all your files. Right now, please. Say “Fentanyl” but do not touch it. Shower in your clothes and then go to church without them. Do not empty yourself until your appointment. Arrive at the appointed place at your appointed time.
