Sometimes .. the story overwhelms the senses




#selfportrait


Sometimes ..

sometimes the story overwhelms the senses

sometimes the pressure flooding through my veins is contagious

sometimes the body is not owned by the persisting mind

sometimes life is the story of a pressured body ...

I promise to make you feel more alive





“I promise to make you more alive than you’ve ever been. For the first time you’ll see your pores opening like the gills of fish and you’ll hear the noise of blood in galleries and feel light gliding on your corneas like the dragging of a dress across the floor.

For the first time, you’ll note gravity’s prick like a thorn in your heel, and our shoulder blades will hurt with the imperative of wings.

I promise to make you so alive that the fall of dust on furniture will deafen you, and you’ll feel your eyebrows like two wounds forming and your memories will seem to begin with the creation of the world.”

-Nina Cassian.
