This feeling also, that if I don’t write the poems, and write this blog, and take the pictures, that, essentially,if I am not looked at, I won’t really exist. I suppose I need to talk to John Berger about that.

I’m not really here
except for the glowing red light

  1. Yes, exactly—this completely resonates with me. Except it’s “heard” for me, rather than “looked at.” I believe we are polar opposites as far as the “exhibitionistic” quality of wanting to be seen (I hide)—-so I think these feelings are not particularly about personality traits. (You may disagree, though, considering your Tzara quote on the right spine of this blog). To feel that way is NOT a pathology, to my mind — it’s a reality.
