It is only as an aesthetic phenomenon that existence and the world are eternally justified
– Friedrich Nietzsche,
Die Geburt der Tragödie aus dem Geiste der Musik
listen / I too grow an inch per year and speak to the wind
a woman who made a career as a poet / Made a career and consequently a life
A refraction off the watery window pane and / the warmth of your bedsheets
