Window Shopping

Socrates believed that the wise person would instinctively lead a frugal life. He himself would not even wear shoes; yet he constantly fell under the spell of the marketplace and would go there often to look at all the wares on display.

Euphoria

You laughed when we suffered, celebrated in our distress. Those little games, as if we didn’t see? Awaiting the division, in bits and pieces you wanted us to be.
