WXBC starts back up in just a few weeks!
(two-thirds of this radio show:
The self does not care
whether one is cast of bronze
or the heart has an iron lining.
At night the self only desires
to steep its clangor in softness,
I stood hunched by the window,
and my brow melted the glass.
What will it be: love or no-love?
And what kind of love:
big or minute?
How could a body like this have a big love?
It should be a teeny-weeny,
humble, little love;
a love that shies at the hooting of cars,
that adores the bells of horse-trams.
Mayakovksy, from Part 1 of The Cloud in Trousers
I love this poem so so so much I want to wrap it up and never let it go
