Do know what’s really scary? You want to forget something. Totally wipe it off your mind. But you never can.

A Tale of Two Sisters (2003)


Shut. The fuck. Up.


And still I dare to love

the sound of the light in the hours of deadness
the color of time on a ruined wall.

In my eyes I’ve lost everything.
Asking is so far away. And so close, this knowledge of want.

—Alejandra Pizarnik, “A Beggar Voice" (translated by Yvette Siegert)
