so little - milosz.

up against., originally uploaded by mrpittman.
i said so little.
days were short.

short days.
short nights.
short years.
i said so little.
i couldn't keep up.

my heart grew weary
from joy,

the jaws of leviathan
were closing upon me.
naked, i lay on the shores
of desert islands.
the white whale of the world
hauled me down to its pit.

and now I don't know
what in all that was real.

    just spent an enjoyable hour catching up on your blog. I'd like to be notified when you update, since you're so "sporadic" (does it run in our family blog lines? :))

    Great pictures - Superior writing. If I didn't already love you, I would now.
