Write For Yourself

Better to write for yourself
and have no public
than to write for the public
and have no self.
-Cyril Connolly

But then why write here, mon cher, Connolly notwithstanding?

The display of exquisite intellect, care with words, is impressive here. Good writing. But that kind of intellect will find no home, alas, in this world.

The snarky humor leavens, but keep going the with the serious, Beckettian shit, even if it doesn't have an audience.

Because it is true.
