Wind and dust are my companions,

The end of the earth is my home.

“L’unico metodo infallibile per conoscere il prossimo è giudicarlo dalle apparenze.”

The only infallible way to know another person is to judge him by his appearance.

Ten Appeals To A Friend

VII

This mournfulness, 

this restlessness the inner convulsions,
an endless island,

solitude within, 

body dying —
all this I owe to you. 

And they were vast,

these plans — ships,

great walls of ivory,

fine words,

promises, 

promises. 

And it would be December,

a jade horse above the water,

doubly transparent,

a line in mid-air-

all this undone by the trapdoor 

of time

in perfect silence.

Some glass mornings wind,

the hollowed soul, 

a sun I can’t see —

this too I owe to you.

Hilda Hilst


‘For the Neverland is always more or less an island, with astonishing splashes of colour here and there’

This Place…

The place where you made your stand never mattered. Only that you were there…and still on your feet.”
