Torture of art


“The heart asks pleasure – first,

And then excuse from pain.
And then those little anodynes
That deaden suffering.

And then, to go to sleep;
And then, if it should be
The will of its Inquisitor,
The liberty to die.”

(E. Dickinson no title from Poems from Emily Dickinson)
Antwerpen (B)

The art of dumping a star

“O powerful western fallen star!
O shades of night! O moody, tearful night!
O great star disappear’d! O the black murk that hides the star!
O cruel hands that hold me powerless! O helpless soul of me!
O harsh surrounding cloud, that will not free my soul!”

(W. Whitman in When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d)
Ougrée (B)

The virility of war


“Come you masters of war
You that build all the guns
You that build the death planes
You that build the big bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks.”

(Bob Dylan in Masters of war)
Eben-Emael (B)

Electric man


“The men call me Muddy

But the woman call me Electric Man
Well, you know whenever I plug into your socket woman
I can charge you like no one else can.”

(Muddy Waters in Electric man)

What are your thoughts?

"I many times thought peace had come,
When peace was far away;
As wrecked men deem they sight the land
At centre of the sea ..."
