Once there was a shock
that left behind a long, shimmering comet tail.
It keeps us inside. It makes the TV pictures snowy.
It settles in cold drops on the telephone wires.
One can still go slowly on skis in the winter sun
through brush where a few leaves hang on.
They resemble pages torn from old telephone directories.
Names swallowed by the cold.
It is still beautiful to hear the heart beat
but often the shadow seems more real than the body.
The samurai looks insignificant
beside his armor of black dragon scales.
- Tomas Tranströmer
things I find interesting:
condensation, murder mysteries, the dissection of the human brain through literature and psychology, socialism, anatomy and the skeletal structure, intricate blue prints of machinery, dodecahedrons, clocks, the swedish language, the 1940s fashion and cars, WWII, imagining nothingness, dystopian novels, and hats.
