…as tough minded and tender hearted as this. If You Forget Me by Pablo Neruda I want you to know one thing. You know how this is: if I look at the crystal moon, at the red branch of the slow autumn at my window, if I touch near the fire the impalpable ash or [...]

Bastards of Young by Stephen Sacco — First Chapter (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: In a satire sending up New York City in the 1990s, Bastards of Young, delves into the now nearly ubiquitous experience of Gen Xs and Gen Ys of living in a world that isn’t quite sure it has a place for us and being a part of a generation that doesn’t know quite how to define itself. The novel’s quirky characters somehow manage to muddle through this environment, however. Mixing genres this comic novel attempts to find some solace in the fact that life isn’t preordained and that you should always be careful for what you wish for.

John Burnside
“and because what we learn in the dark
remains all our lives,
a noise like the sea, displacing the day's
pale knowledge,

you'll come to yourself
in a glimmer of rainfall or frost,
the burnt smell of autumn,
a meeting of parallel lines,

and know you were someone else
for the longest time,
pretending you knew where you were, like a diffident tourist,
lost on the one main square, and afraid to enquire.”
John Burnside, Selected Poems
