"I have hardly anything in common with myself and should stand very quietly in a corner, content that I can breathe." (kafka)

lit theory, church architecture, and whales // also hannibal, sports anime (knb, free!, haikyuu!!, dont look at me), pacific rim, and night vale are the fandoms of the hour. & always up for shakespeare.
people often look for hannibal meta or thoughts on performative kingship.

Language is a skin: I rub my language against the other. It is as if I had words instead of fingers, or fingers at the tip of my words. My language trembles with desire. The emotion derives from a double contact: on the one hand, a whole activity of discourse discreetly, indirectly focuses upon a single signified, which is “I desire you,” and releases, nourishes, ramifies it to the point of explosion (language experiences orgasm upon touching itself); on the other hand, I enwrap the other in my words, I caress, brush against, talk up this contact, I extend myself to make the commentary to which I submit the relation endure.
