"I ask nothing else but to speak simply, to be granted this grace.
Because our song has become overloaded with so many kinds of
music that slowly it is sinking
and our art has been overlaid so heavily that the gold has eaten
away its face
and it is time we spoke the few words we have because tomorrow
our souls set sail."
George Seferis, from “An Old Man on the Riverbank,” in A Levant Journal, trans. by Roderick Beaton (Ibis Editions, 2007)
"A minute is actually an immense space of time."
