from the poem “War of Life” in Artifice in the Calm Damages
If there’s life on other planets, then
the earth is the Universe’s insane asylum. I felt something
was wrong the entire time, but I had possibly misread
the situation in its entirety. Someday, there will be something
that you just won’t be able to do again, like straighten up.
You’ll say I’m never going to get over it.
100% with you, this goes beyond passion, it is a cosmic orgasm.
