  2. "Now, when you awaken, remember the swan’s last
    dance. Did you dance with cherubs while
    you were dreaming? Did the butterfly illuminate you
    when it burned with the eternal light of the rose? Did
    the phoenix appear to you clearly…and did it call you
    by name? Did you see the dawn rise
    out of your beloved’s fingers? And did you touch the dream
    by hand, or did you let the dream dream alone,
    when you became aware of your absence suddenly?
    Tell me how you lived your dream
    in some place, and I’ll tell you who you are"
    — Mahmoud Darwish, from “Now, When You Awaken, Remember” (tr. by Fady Joudah), in The Butterfly’s Burden. Copper Canyon Press, 2006 (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)

  8. "But my dreaming self refuses to be consoled. It continues to wander, aimless, homeless, alone. It cannot be convinced of its safety by any evidence drawn from my waking life."
