The Discords

Only Bread, only light

I could tell you things
But I’m not old enough—
Just walking over a large and shining ice patch


Did I eat Prufrock’s peach yesterday?


Of the bumblebee Lars Gustafsson writes:

“A flying man who lives far within the wood
Has folded up his wings and sleeps in the rain.”


Up river and down
My childhood
But unlike Huck
No Jim, no friends


“So that’s what made you a poet!”


In the forest there are still signs of the old mill.


Terry Eagleton says pessimism is the most difficult moral condition to obtain.
Silly. He never ate frozen strawberries with a 100 year old monk in rural Finland in winter darkness. In general academics need to get out more.


If I knew so much parataxis would occupy me
I’d have (instead) invented the shoe horn.


Everyone has a debt to death
But on clear mornings you can hear them thar pianos…
