What I am trying here
All of writing is a lens.
Most of writing endeavors to be so clear and flawless as to become unnoticeable.
Bringing no attention to itself.
Not to be seen, but to be seen through.
That's not my school of writing.
My school involves a lot of scratching the lens, getting fingerprints all over it, and abruptly shifting the focus so that you'll say
"Hey, wait a second!"
And then you'll apply it to everything else you read while taking my work as holy writ.
It hasn't worked yet.
