"Kinski says [the jungle] is full of erotic elements. It's not so much erotic, but full of obscenity. Nature here is vile and base. I wouldn't see anything erotic here. I see fornication and asphyxiation and choking, fighting for survival and growing and just rotting away. Of course there's a lot of misery, but it's the same misery that's all around us. The trees are in misery, and the birds are in misery. I don't think they sing; they just screech in pain. Taking a close look at what's around us, there is some sort of harmony. It's the harmony of overwhelming and collective murder. But when I say this, I say this all full of admiration for the jungle. It's not that I hate it. I love it. I love it very much. But I love it against my better judgment."

(from Les Blank's Burden of Dreams)

most people would die sooner than think; in fact, they do.

“I was always interested in French poetry sort of as a sideline to my own work, I was translating contemporary French poets. That kind of spilled out into translation as a way to earn money, pay for food and put bread on the table.”

i have always highly esteemed the brave and humble workers who labor all night to produce those soft but crusty loaves that look more like cake than bread.

Dodger: Oh, and we're all very impressed. Right, guys?
Tito: Very impressed!

s’io credesse che mia risposta fosse
a persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
non torno vivo alcun, s’i’odo il vero,
senza tema d’infamia ti rispondo.

let us go then, you and i,
when the evening is spread out against the sky
like a patient etherised upon a table;
let us go, through certain half-deserted streets,
the muttering retreats
of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels
and sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells:
streets that follow like a tedious argument
of insidious intent
to lead you to an overwhelming question …
oh, do not ask, “what is it?”
let us go and make our visit.

in the room the women come and go
talking of michelangelo.

twas noontide of summer
and mid time of night
and stars in their orbits
shone pale thro the light
of the brighter cold moon
mid planets her slaves
herself in the heavens
her beam on the waves
i gazed awhile
on her cold smile
too cold - too cold for me
there passed as a shroud
a fleecy cloud
and i turned away to thee

what lies behind us and what lies before us are but tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

this world is bad enough maybe; we do not comprehend it
but in one fact can all agree; god won't and we can't mend it.
