From the balcony, open to the misty starlight,
A sad wind came, from invisible worlds …
And she, she asked me about things unknowable
And I answered her with unattainable things.
*

Memory, blind, buzzing bee of bitterness-
Not knowing what you were, I know that you have been.

When i moved to Australia, i traded in allot of books, but often grabbed new ones in the process. the case with this book which unfortunately does not contain the originals so perhaps i cannot say anything about it. i still was quite taken, and it has been one of the things that has reminded me that as all these new frontiers are constantly being defined, and/or the trivial masquerades as such, (academics ones being the most pitiful) there often is a cost as to what then becomes lost.

I am so excited to discover another master of the written word! I had gotten to the point in my reading where I sort of feel like I'd at least heard of all the greats, so it's nice to be proven wrong. His work is must-read, and too great to be distilled here. :)
