A long overdue post (something I started to writeand meant to share back in September when The Erotic Postulate was released!) is up on jdbrecords. Much like this post from 2012 where I took my dear readers on astoryboard tour of Skin Shift (also on jdbrecords), this post walks you through fourof the paintings behind four poems central toThe Erotic Postulate.

Virginia Woolf
“That perhaps is your task--to find the relation between things that seem incompatible yet have a mysterious affinity, to absorb every experience that comes your way fearlessly and saturate it completely so that your poem is a whole, not a fragment; to re-think human life into poetry and so give us tragedy again and comedy by means of characters not spun out at length in the novelist's way, but condensed and synthesized in the poet's way--that is what we look to you to do now.”
Virginia Woolf

Rainer Maria Rilke
“For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror
which we are barely able to endure, and it amazes us so,
because it serenely disdains to destroy us.
Every angel is terrible.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino Elegies
