Tiresias, we are not to blame

one’s your foe and one’s your flame

Belle and Sebastian - A Summer Wasting - YouTube →

say cheerio to books now,
the only things i’ll read are faces.
I spent the summer wasting
under a canopy of:

seven weeks of river walkways,
seven weeks of reading papers,
seven weeks of feeling guilty,
seven weeks of staying up all night.

Remember the poem? Come on! You know the calendar never matters. I feel the November of the body; constantly this November of the body no matter what the calendar says. I can’t get rid of this longing; this terrible longing to grasp whatever that is still unknown regarding my fate. My head is frost-bitten and winter is always so soul-consuming. No, I am through with breakdowns for I have lost interest in sadness. It’s not that I’m accustomed to it or feel comfortable with it. The sadness, Anne, is like one of my fur-coats. It is so self-defining that it hardly leaves me anything to myself. But you know how terribly in love I am with my fur-coats, don’t you? I have developed an extravagant passion for them. And the poems are again writing themselves.

— Anne Sexton, A Self-Portrait In Letters

Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.’

if i gain some self respect 

i could smile upon the day when we first met 

but i made some swift revisions 

through whiskey blurred visions

and i promised that i’d never, ever look back
