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


   "I’m here," Bran said, "only I’m broken. Will you…will you fix me…my legs, I mean?"   ”No,” said the pale lord. “That is beyond my powers.” Bran’s eyes filled with tears. We came such a long way. "You will never walk again, Bran" the pale lips promised, "but you will fly".

"Words weren’t dull, words were things that could make your mind hum. If you read them and let yourself feel the magic, you could live without pain, with hope, no matter what happened to you."

-Charles Bukowski via Ham on Rye

 But I am your servant. When you starve I will feed you; when you are sick I will tend you. I crawl at your feet; for before your love, your kisses, I am debased. For you alone I will be weak.

"She started reading. She didn’t mean to spend long at it, but soon she was devouring every word, oblivious to the creaking old home and the rain outside."
