Sometimes even the sirens cry

Powązki by Pandora + Sleeping Beauty frm

Looking for melancholia in all the wrong places, or in the right places for the wrong reasons this absolutely colorless morning. I've always rejected the abstracted aestheticizing of cemeteries: they are receptacles of the pain of those who lie in wake amongst the four stones walls, and those who travel freely, by day or night, through heaving iron gates.

this I will bookmark- I have the new Audrey Niffenegger book her fearful symmetry. These images put me in mind to just drop the others and get to it. la

If you can't aestheticize pain, what are aesthetics good for? That's when you need it most.

Ezra, you are wise and good, and I thank you for your comment. I agree- I suppose I've been thinking myopically, stuck in an idea of diffident yet gauche teenage cemetery-lovers that I ought to have abandoned years ago.

Months later, still puzzling Ezra's comment over. It is the fetishizing of pain, both our own and others', that I reject.
