This has been a painfully sobering week.
Boston explosions, Duke bomb threat just the morning after, Texas plant blast, and now a shooter at MIT?
Duke history professor Martin A. Miller warns against letting terrorism and violence overwhelm our conceptions of risk, but this is scary, and I am fearful.
- Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore (via larmoyante)
I remember your collarbone, forming the tiniest
satellite dish in the universe, your smile
as the place where parallel lines inevitably crossed.
I remember your eyes: fifty attack dogs on a single leash,
how I once held the soft audience of your hand.
I’ve been ignored by prettier women than you,
but none who carried the heavy pitchers of silence
so far, without spilling a drop.
- Jeffrey McDaniel, “Letter to the Woman Who Stopped Writing Me Back” (via larmoyante)
