"...the swan that you present to society, the alligator that you know that you truly are...

The alligator then, the most honest self - submerged and protected by the most necessary and socially expected guardian swan.

The swan and the alligator symbiotically joint victims of the ever-present yet strategically distanced greater predator.

The true predator, a casual and careless marauder, who with easy unconcern by degreed degrades existence - diminishing sustenance through the auspices of the lowly, helpless and crucified worm.

Layers and polarities...A self portrait of the individual in society as well as one of social functionality at large.
