POETRY & WRITING

Nothing enchants the mind more than the existence of the outside world, of something that resists it and will not obey.  Pampered by its own omnipotence, its own capacity to connect and identify everything with everything, the mind needs an obstacle, at least as big as the world – and desires it.  To pursue that obstacle and penetrate it: here was a challenge that could thrill and uplift, the riskiest challenge of all.  It was the pursuit of the antelope.  It has never stopped.

 

The powers of the world – the desire and the wound – come to a stop there where all that is left of the antelope is a hoof print.
