speaking about ‘towers’ by bon iver (one of my favorite songs)
i don’t know why this struck me so much, especially:
“it’s okay to want to ruin all that ruined you… it’s okay to despise what you have inherited, to feel dead in the city of pulses.”
“if it is useful to do so, you must abandon your identity and start again. sometimes, it’s the only way.”
i should have this tattooed on me.
i am always surprised to find that sylvia has captured feelings so well. highlighting and underlining sentences in her books is always difficult because i want to highlight every single phrase- i might as well dip the whole book in yellow highlighter ink.
