Katerina Anghelàki-Rooke – Post-scriptum poétique | BEAUTY WILL SAVE THE WORLD

Poetic Postscript

Poems cannot be beautiful
anymore, because truth
has turned ugly.
Experience is now
the only body of poems
and the richer the experience
the better the poem is nourished
and the stronger it grows.
My knees ache
I am unable to fall on them
to worship poetry;
the wounds of my experience
is all I have to offer.
The adjectives withered;
only with my fantasies
I can decorate poetry now.
But I shall always serve her
-for as long as she wants me-
because only poetry can make me
forget for a while
the closed horizon of my future.

On Truth
Nothing is poorer than a truth expressed as it was thought. Committed to writing in such cases, it is not even a bad photograph. Truth wants to be startled abruptly, at one stroke, from her self-immersion, whether by uproar, music or cries for help. – Walter Benjamin
