Tempting Persephone

Tempting Persephone

"The masters of information have forgotten about poetry, where words may have a meaning quite different from what the lexicon says, where the metaphoric spark is always one jump ahead of the decoding function, where another, unforeseen reading is always possible."
— J.M. Coetzee

"He cannot give answers to questions like these. He cannot give answers because he is not in the mood for answers. That is what it means to be gloomy: at a level far below the play and flicker of the intellect (Why not this? Why not that?) he, he, the he he calls sometimes you, sometimes I, is all too ready to embrace darkness, stillness, extinction. He: not the one whose mind used to dart this way and that but the one who aches all night."
-From Slow Man by J.M. Coetzee, quoted in Passions and Tempers: A History of the Humours by Noga Arikha. (via othersashas)

The life line’s interrupted; all bits and pieces. The marriage line’s divided—means two marriages. But most divided lines are broken. Yours is…forked.
