nearly there

From the basement where we first talked,
to the ride home
with the kids we barely knew,
you left a permanent scar.

Memories are taped on our walls,
hung as a reminder.
How easy it could be,
when we weren’t growing apart.

I’m always talking in circles,
I always think until I can’t sleep.

We always want what is kept from us.
Well maybe I am the liar,
and there is nothing that is left for us.
You are a permanent scar.

I’m always talking in circles,
I always think until I can’t sleep.

You are the leaves at my feet.
You are the hum of electric heat.
I kept myself away,
but I’m starting to like the pain.

"Hum"

-Tigers Jaw

This great evil. Where does it come from? How’d it steal into the world? What seed, what root did it grow from? Who’s doin’ this? Who’s killin’ us? Robbing us of life and light. Mockin’ us with the sight of what we might’ve known. Does our ruin benefit the earth? Does it help the grass to grow, the sun to shine? Is this darkness in you, too? Have you passed through this night?

David Foster Wallace, In His Own Words

wordpainting:

This is the comencement address he gave to the graduates of Kenyon College in 2005. It captures his electric mind, and also his humility—the way he elevated and made meaningful, beautiful, many of the lonely thoughts that rattle around in our heads. The way he put better thoughts in our heads, too. (Many thanks to Marginalia.org for making this available.)
