Poetry, notes, and drawings by William Michaelian
For some inexplicable reason, I find myself remembering Santayana's "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" as I read this wonderful poem over and over again.
Ja, Mit dem Sinn sollte man diesen Pakt jedesmal vorher eingehen, dann lässt sich auch danach handeln... wundervolle, tiefe Gedanken..alles Liebe, RachelYes, with the sense you should refer each time before this Pact, then you can also then be... wonderful, deep thought..all love, Rachel
Well, Vassilis, ’tis true, both speak to the delicious, fluid, unreliable realm of memory. Personally, I’m surprised to see how this poem has changed in the space of a day. It’s definitely not how I remembered it, either before or after it was written. This time around, it seems we are both condemned....Rachel, life is a beautiful tangle. Many are convinced they know the difference between fact and imagination, as if they were distinctly different things. And yet that difference itself might be imagined.
