"The absurd does not liberate; it binds."

-Albert Camus

whenever we embrace,

haunted, upwelling,

I know

a reunion is taking place-

- Cyrus Cassells, Beautiful Signor

return to me, oh Lord of then

and now, my mother's calling,

her young voice humming my name.

- Lucille Clifton, oh antic God

Whoever said the soul

and the body met in the

pineal gland was a fool.

It's the asshole, stupid.

- André Aciman, Call Me By Your Name
