Julie’s October Blog

Byword

One of my life signatures involves an inherent tendency to seek out alternative ways of considering—well, everything.

Today’s quote is the poem “In the Desert” by Stephen Crane:

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, “Is it good, friend?”
“It is bitter—bitter,” he answered;
“But I like it
“Because it is bitter,
“And because it is my heart.”
