Identity is gradual, cumulative; because there is no need for it to manifest itself, it shows itself intermittently, the way a star hints at the pulse of its being by means of its flickering light. But at what moment in this oscillation is our true self manifested? In the darkness or the twinkle?

—  Sergio Chejfec, The Planets.

Poetry: an artform so provocative and effective that the entirety of Western Culture has to spend itself daily telling you what a waste of time it is.

“Act my age?
What the fuck is that, “act my age”?
What do I care how old I am?
The Ocean is old as fuck.

“You don’t owe people the person you used to be. You don’t have to talk to people who are speaking to the old you. If they want to drag old you out, and you’ve already left that person behind, they don’t get to talk to you. When you’ve gone from weakness to strength, you don’t owe a show of your former self to someone who just can’t wrap their head around your change.”

– Dig Yourself (via howitzerliterarysociety)
