    Begin
    With singing
    Sing
    Darkness kindled back into beginning
    When the caught tongue nodded blind,
    A star was broken
    Into the centuries of the child
    Myselves grieve now, and miracles cannot atone.

  4. "But I like my stories to be true to life, which means there have to be wolves in them. Wolves in one form or another.
    Why is that so true to life? She turns away from him onto her back, stares up at the ceiling. She’s miffed because her own version has been trumped.
    All stories are about wolves. All worth repeating, that is. Anything else is sentimental drivel.
    All of them?
    Sure, he says. Think about it. There’s escaping from the wolves, fighting the wolves, capturing the wolves, taming the wolves. Being thrown to the wolves, or throwing others to the wolves so the wolves will eat them instead of you. Running with the wolf pack. Turning into a wolf. Best of all, turning into the head wolf. No other decent stories exist.
    I think they do, she says. I think the story about you telling me the story about wolves isn’t about wolves.
    Don’t bet on it, he says, I have a wolf side to me. Come over here."

    ― Margaret Atwood, from The Blind Assassin (via aubade)
