I reason, earth is short

I reason, earth is short,
And anguish absolute,
And many hurt;
But what of that?

I reason, we could die:
The best vitality
Cannot excel decay;
But what of that?

I reason that in heaven
Somehow, it will be even,
Some new equation given;
But what of that?

Emily Dickinson

in TIME AND ETERNITY. XXIII.

About dascola

P.E.G.D'Ascola, alla sorda anagrafe lombarda privato dell’apostrofo, è eteronimo o pseudonimo di sé medesimo; tende all'anonimo: avere troppe origini per adattarsi a una sola è un dato, un vezzo e forse un male, si assomiglia alla fine più che a Racine a un Déraciné, sradicato. Ma come Cioran, "con la tentazione di esistere", egli scrive.
