Born today...Karin Boye,poet, October 26, 1900 Gothenburg, Sweden


Say, where does the world's heart burn,
the world's heart of fire? 
It lives on coarse, heavy prehistoric coal:
black darkness, dense night, Chaos. 
Seek there! 
itself a struggle, glowing struggle -
For thus is the nature of fire: 
strong with its foe's struggle - 
has no other nature. 
And the victory? When the darkness has disappeared in flames?
and fire wants to conquer.
Is the victory death? 
Empty question and empty fear! 
The world's heart is fire,


Lilith and Faun

Rikki Ducornet ...poem and watercolour & gouache ... 1989

The lunatic algebra
of Love.
The frenzied orbits
of Mood.
The malarial temperatures
of Wound.
Symbols of the Cult
of Seizure:
This flesh, this amulet
This hot spoor
of predators.
This zodiac savaged
in the sky.

The Cult of Seizure 1989
