    1. Sandra on said:

The touch of language is so light, the attenuation of a body of wisdom, one cannot help be carried into different dimensions of insight, often delightfully, sometimes sadly. From [without strangeness]: take the poisonthat bears your nameno matter the priceit costs too much

      Short, razor sharp lyrics. Piercing work, and always very, very smart.
