Posts are Friends only, but new friends are welcome.

For they are creatures of dark air,
Unsubstantial tossing forms. . .
In mid-whirl of mental storms.

-Robert Graves, Mermaid, Dragon, Fiend-

You dozed, and watched the night revealing
The thousand sordid images
Of which your soul was constituted

-T.S. Eliot, Preludes

This present tragedy will eventually
turn into myth, and in the mist
of that later telling the bell tolling
now will be a symbol, or, at least,
a sign of something long since lost.

This will be another one of those
loose changes, the rearrangement of
hearts, just parts of old lives
patched together, gathered into
a dim constellation, small consolation.

Look, we will say, you can almost see
the outline there: her fingertips
touching his, the faint fusion
of two bodies breaking into light.

-Joyce Sutphen, Naming the Stars
