My penchant for portraying my dreamlike inner life has rendered everything else inconsequential; my life has atrophied terribly, and does not stop atrophying.

—Franz Kafka

There is infinite hope, but not for us.

—Franz Kafka

I begin with writing the first sentence — and trusting to Almighty God for the second

I am dry with longing
and I hunger for her.

—Sappho, from Poems Of Sappho (via goghst)

(via goghst)

To devastate conventional, standard canonical, representation. Because the poem is the moment of a listening. And the sign is only given to sight. It is deaf and it deafens. Only the poem can voice us, move us from voice to voice, make a listening of us, give us all language as listening. And the continuity of this listening includes, imposes a continuity among the subjects that we are, the language that we’re becoming and the active ethic that is this listening, from which a politics comes. A politics of thinking. The Rhythm Party.

—Henri Meschonnic, “A Rhythm Party Manifesto” (trans by Avra Spector & Lisa Robertson)

Only my books anoint me,
and a few friends,
those who reach into my veins.

—Anne Sexton, from “The Witch’s Life” (via whisperingsolitude)

(via whisperingsolitude)

In the ordinary jumble of my literary drawer, I sometimes find texts I wrote ten, fifteen, or even more years ago. And many of them seem to me written by a stranger: I simply do not recognize myself in them. There was a person who wrote them, and it was I. I experienced them, but it was in another life, from which I just woke up, as if from someone else’s dream.
