    • i used to look up at the night sky in wonder and i used to dream the dreams of a boy. i used to imagine that i was a superhero, who could save the world. and in an intro to one of our early albums, there is a line that says, “my heart stopped when i was maybe nine or ten.” looking back, i think that’s when i began to worry about what other people thought of me and started seeing myself through their eyes. i stopped looking up at the night skies, the stars. i stopped daydreaming. instead, i just tried to jam myself into the molds that other people made. soon, i began to shut out my own voice and started to listen to the voices of others. no one called out my name and neither did i. my heart stopped and my eyes closed shut. so, like this, i, we, all lost our names. we became like ghosts. but i had one san...

    • he was always sad about the world. it was a large reason why i loved him. we'd sit together and be sad and think about being sad and sometimes discuss sadness.
    • on his last human day, he said, 'annie, don't you see? we're all getting too smart. our brains are just getting bigger and bigger, and the world dries up and dies when there's too much thought and not enough heart.'
    • i tried to dream up to the stars, but i didn't know how to do that. i tried to find a star no one in all of history had ever wished on before, and wondered what would happen if i did.
    • i review my memories and make sure they're still intact because if he's not here, then it is my job to remember.

mystic

the air is a mill of hooks━ questions without answer, glittering and drunk as flies whose kiss stings unbearably in the fetid wombs of black air under pines in summer.

i remember the dead smell of sun on wood cabins, the stiffness of sails, the long salt winding sheets. once one has seen god, what is the remedy? once one has been seized up

without a part left over, not a toe, not a finger, and used, used utterly, in the sun's conflagration, the stains that lengthen from ancient cathedrals what is the remedy?

the pill of the communion tablet, the walking beside still water? memory? or picking up the bright pieces of christ in the faces of rodents, the tame flower-nibblers, the ones

whose hopes are so low they are comfortab...

    • (...) if you’re really good at something, i mean if there’s nobody, or hardly anybody, who’s as good as you are, then you’ve got to be serious about that. don’t mess around, for god’s sake.
    • (...) and when you really love something, then it loves you back, in whatever way it has to love.
    • and all the people there were intensely real, wildly alive and totally meaningful, and i alone was a dream, a figment which had never really touched anything. i felt that i was not, never had been and never would be a living part of this overpoweringly solid and deeply meaningful world around me.

    • you see someone, but you don’t really see him, he’s in the wings. or you notice him, but nothing clicks, nothing “catches,” and before you’re even aware of a presence, or of something troubling you, the six weeks that were offered you have almost passed and he’s either already gone or just about to leave, and you’re basically scrambling to come to terms with something, which, unbeknownst to you, has been brewing for weeks under your very nose and bears all the symptoms of what you’re forced to call i want. how couldn’t i have known, you ask? i know desire when i see it—and yet, this time, it slipped by completely.
