Arts & Entertainment "Beauty in art is often nothing but ugliness subdued." The written word, the spoken word, performance art, visual art. What is "Art?" From television advertising to opera, comic books to classic literature, vacation snapshots to the Sistine Chapel Frescoes; we are exposed to art every day. What is art to you?

Memorable Passages

Survive long enough and you get to a far point in life where nothing else of particular interest is going to happen.

After that, if you don't watch out, you can spend all your time tallying your losses and gains in endless narrative.

All you love has fled or been taken away. Everything fallen from you except the possibility of jolting and unforewarned memory springing out of the dark, rushing over you with the velocity of heartbreak.

-Charles Frazier (author of Cold Mountain)

"It is interesting to note that the “sexual revolution” was sometimes portrayed as a communal utopia, whereas in fact it was simply another stage in the historical rise of individualism. As the lovely word “household” suggests, the couple and the family would be the last bastion of primitive communism in liberal society. The sexual revolution was to destroy these intermediary communities, the last to separate the individual from the market. The destruction continues to this day."

Michel Houellebecq, Atomised

Bear claimed there were old men and women he knew as a child who practiced a deep form of winter sleep and could den up nearly as long as bear or groundhog in a state of consciousness more akin to death than anything else.

Those old ones would not eat or drink or dream or even rise from slumber to piss for nearly three months.

But now the exact art of it was lost, like knapping flint into knife blades sharp enough to shave the hair on your arms.

Elegy

Oh destiny of Borges
to have sailed across the diverse seas of the world
or across that single and solitary sea of diverse names,
to have been a part of Edinburgh, of Zurich, of the two Cordobas,
of Colombia, and of Texas,
to have returned at the end of changing generations
to the ancient lands of his forebears,
to Andalucia, to Portugal and to those counties
where the Saxon warred with the Dane and they mixed their blood,
to have wandered through the red and tranquil labyrinth of London,
to have grown old in so many mirrors,
to have sought in vain the marble gaze of the statues,
to have questioned lithographs, encyclopedias, atlases,
to have seen the things that men see,
death, the sluggish dawn, the plains,
and the delicate stars,
and to have seen nothing, or almost nothing,
except the face of a girl from Buenos Aires
a face that does not want you to remember it.
Oh destiny of Borges,
perhaps no stranger than your own.

(1964) by Jorge Luis Borges

I'm sure I remember that. I think I read it again sometime recently but it surprised me to hear the source. I don't rightly know why!

I remember trying to return the favor by giving him one of a pair of oranges that the teamsters had left as a treat.

Bear had not experienced oranges before, and he watched me eat mine before he started on his own.

It took him an hour to finish. He peeled it slowly and studied the different sides of the peels and smelled them and smelled his fingers.

Then he ate each section very slowly, sniffing each one before he put it in his mouth.

He savored every moment of his consumption of that orange.

When he was done he collected all the pieces of peel and dried them in the sun like jerky.

A month later, they had lost most of their color, but still held the ghost of the orange's aroma, and Bear kept them in a gourd sealed with a wooden stopper to hold in the scent that would have to do him until another orange made its way into the mountains.

I knew a woman, lovely in her bones,
When small birds sighed, she would sigh back at them;
Ah, when she moved, she moved more ways than one:
The shapes a bright container can contain!



Let seed be grass, and grass turn into hay:
I'm martyr to a motion not my own;
What's freedom for? To know eternity.
I swear she cast a shadow white as stone.
But who would count eternity in days?
These old bones live to learn her wanton ways:
(I measure time by how a body sways).

from: I Knew A Woman

Theodore Roethke

“I'm ruined beyond repair, is what I fear...And if so, in time we'd both be wretched and bitter."
"I know people can be mended. Not all, and some more immediately than others. But some can be. I don't see why not you."
"Why not me?”

Drunk Ol' Bukowski Drunk

I hold to the edge of the table

with my belly dangling over my belt

and I glare at the lampshade

the smoke clearing

over

North Hollywood

the boys put their muskets down

lift high their fish-green beer

as I fall forward off the couch

kiss rug hairs like cnut hairs

close as I've been in a long time.


-Charles Bukowski
