To be happy is to be able to become aware of oneself without fright.
Walter Benjamin


Every passion borders on the chaotic, but the collector’s passion borders on the chaos of memories.

There is no more I can lose. We have
     reached the end of ending.
And so I simply stroke, and
     stroke. And stroke your face.

—Marina Tsvetaeva, from “Poem of the End” (translated by Elaine Feinstein)





Mad Girl’s Love Song

I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

The stars go waltzing out in blue and red,
And arbitrary blackness gallops in:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I dreamed that you bewitched me into bed
And sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

God topples from the sky, hell’s fires fade:
Exit seraphim and Satan’s men:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I fancied you’d return the way you said,
But I grow old and I forget your name.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

I should have loved a thunderbird instead;
At least when spring comes they roar back again.
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

- Sylvia Plath
