"Archaeologists have not yet discovered any stage of human existence without art. Even in the half-light before the dawn of humanity we received this gift from Hands we did not manage to discern. Nor have we managed to ask: Why was this gift given to us and what are we to do with it? And all those prophets who are predicting that art is disintegrating, that it has used up all its forms, that it is dying, are mistaken. We are the ones who shall die. And art will remain. The question is whether before we perish we shall understand all its aspects and all its ends."

— Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Beauty Will Save the World (via kalliope-amorphous)

i’m in love with the daughters

of downed power lines

-they kiss like electric fences

with the viscosity

of wine.
