The Pianist

The Pianist

I’m in the middle of exams at the moment. Tomorrow I write both English and History.

Here’s a still from The Pianist. More or less history related (eugenics/genocide being the theme this term) so technically I do consider this studying.

Aspects of Love (III)

 III

On the high hill in the cold wind
On a sunless day
You brought my a bird seeking to unsay
Its vulture moments. Though I was afraid
I felt its warmth undo my startled hand.

Aspects of Love (II)

II

Love? We should smother it
And push it up the chimney –
He said, half meaning it.
We know now what he intended
For finding love at their door
On a cold night, people – if they are wise –
Will push it up the chimney into the smoke before
It wails at them with such clenched desire
As will bring into the quiet house
The significant ecstatic loss.

Green things grow in the wrong places.
They unfeather in the emphasis
On noughts in the sum.
Love is no logician, hears the argument
Blandly, never to profit
By the Socratic method,
And puts forth greenness on outlandish stone.
