His affectation was charm,
and it fit him like rings on frost-bitten fingers–

suited him 

as precisely and neatly 

as a jailer suits an in-mate;

at least in there 

offenses all amount to the same:

a criminal is a criminal.

Here we have degrees. 

He uses static the way static is applied 

(for trickery 

 in clean air),

to make the wave-lengths muddied.

Static is used to provide interference 

the way a commercial 

breaks up the event,

to give you little distractions.

To employ devices and techniques 

is distortion. 

It is dysmorphic. 

He is a dysmorphic person.
