  • Epigraph: It’s all very well to read and write. But you can go too far. They talk about what is ‘right’ and ‘honest’ but people look down at their plates if you say something is beautiful.

    . – Kirsten Farrell, The Vivisector Oracle (performance and multimedia work, 2015), based on a passage in Patrick White’s The Vivisector.

    The quote used as the epigraph and skeleton for this poem was allocated to me during a personal reading of The Vivisector Oracle conducted in March 2015 by Kirsten Farrell.
