ars poetica


Filmstudie (Hans Richter, 1926)
"Even now, I tell myself, there is a language
to which I might speak and which
would rightly hear me;
responding with eloquence; in its turn,
negotiating sense without insult
given or injury taken.
Familiar to those who already know it
elsewhere as justice,
it is met also in the form of silence."
— Geoffrey Hill, from “The Triumph of Love
