“The Confession” / Memorable Fancies #2184

[“The confession is obtained by automatic betrayal of the body as part of an integrated circuit.” – Jean Baudrillard]

The police have bribed my tongue with sweet berries, my lips with ice-cream, bribed them to confess crimes that will now be mine: two unsolved burglaries, to begin. “SOLVED” “SOLVED” the rubber stamp shouts. And then more berries, more ice-cream, more crimes. I would complain, but my mouth is full and guilt is sweet.
