Fiesta del llanto (Tragedia XV)

"Living grows round us like a skin
To shut away the outer desolation
For if we clearly mark the furthest deep
We should be dead long years before the grave.
But turning around within the homely shell
Of worry, discontent, and narrow joy
We grow and flourish
And rarely see the outside dark
That would confound our eyes.

Some break the shell.

I think that there are those
Who push their fingers through
The brittle walls
And make a hole.
And through this cruel slit
Stare out across the cinders of the world
With naked eyes.
They look both out and in
Knowing themselves
And too much else besides."

The shell, de Molly Drake (mamá de Nick Drake)

Festejamos en la alegría. A vos como a muchos otros, tengo la certeza de que te conozco y puedo verte... como parte del afuera, como parte de ese mundo oscuro. Pero jamás podremos juntarnos. No existe tal cosa como una fiesta del llanto.
