Acerca de la existencia esencial (Mary Ruefle, en la voz de Carla Badillo Coronado)

El caballo montó a la yegua lenta y precisamente
y después paró.

Le molestaba profundamente una hebra de paja.

Lo distraía profundamente el triste juguete
dado vuelta en el árbol.

Lo desconcentraba profundamente media nube
por el rabillo húmedo del ojo.

Y después siguió.

Nada se les olvida a los amantes
excepto quiénes son.

TTM #1: Mary Ruefle's Sadness

Talking To Myself
Episode artwork
Read more

In which I talk to myself about Mary Ruefle’s sadness, social media, our inner interlocutors, and the decision to deliver electric shocks to one's own gonads rather than sit in a room quietly listening to the mind’s chatter.

“Gray sadness is the sadness of paper clips and rubber bands, of rain and squirrels and chewing gum, ointments and unguents and movie theaters. Gray sadness is the most common of all sadnesses, it is the sadness of sand in the desert and sand on the beach, the sadness of keys in a pocket, cans on a shelf, hair in a comb, dry-cleaning, and raisins. Gray sadness is beautiful, but not to be confused with the beauty of blue sadness, which is irreplaceable. Sad to say, gray sadness is replaceable, it can be replaced daily, it is the sadness of a melting snowman in a snowstorm.” 

(Mary Ruefle, from My Private Property)

READ TO ME with Becky Karush
Episode artwork
Read more
READ TO ME is the Gateless Writing-inspired podcast where we listen for what we love. In this episode, we read a small piece of MADNESS, RACK, AND HONEY by Mary Ruefle. These collected lectures are about poetry (the writing, reading, and living of it), and here Ruefle writes about secrets. And opera. And Osage stories. And listening. How do you respond to work that is like the inside of a poem? You let it love you.
