Degas i jo

«Et cal una vida natural; per a mi una vida artificial». Vides naturals, vides artificials, jo real, joc poètic. La vida és això. El barbut de la barra empiocat fins a les celles demana una copa més, la copa que el tombarà en el ring nocturn del somni fictici que pretén viure. 430 more words

A Pairing: Edgar Degas + Naomi Shihab Nye

Edgar Degas, After the Bath, Woman drying herself (1890 – 1895)

Skin remembers how long the years grow
when skin is not touched, a gray tunnel
of singleness, feather lost from the tail
of a bird, swirling onto a step,
swept away by someone who never saw
