Rome is Burning (from Letters to a Postmodernist)

you have given me a schizophrenic assemblage
dissembled.  out of context
and re-contextualized
and amidst all that
you have hidden yourself
in labyrinths
leaving me to find
what you mean
but
it is not your meaning at all I am finding
but mine.

I am wondering at the sarcasm
irony
anger
feelings of betrayal
from a society which has
wished the best perhaps
and given the worst
or is that me again?
