*****

reading table

I speak across the vast
Dialogues in which we go
To clench my words against
Time or the lack of time
Hoping that for a moment
They will become for me
A place I can think in
And think anything in,
An aside from the monstrous.

***

This is no other place
Than where I am, between
This word and the next.

—W. S. Graham (1918-1986), from “The Dark Dialogues”

musical thoughts

Is not all music, even the most niggardly, beautiful to the person who loves the very being and existence of music?

—Robert Walser (1878-1956), “The Walk” (translated from German by Christopher Middleton and Susan Bernofsky)
