Do you hear what I am saying? It is raining
inside my dream of you. The only true saints won’t let the heart
raffle off their desires. Once we could trust the simple spinning
of the planet to bring us back. But to where?
- Richard Jackson, from “Benediction,” Heartwall (University of Massachusetts Press, 2000)
I always marvel at the humans’ ability to keep going. They always manage to stagger on even with tears streaming down their faces.
