A heavy heart


David said...

In the desert
I saw the Carmozan Queen,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held her heart in her hands,
And ate of it.

I said, “Is it good, friend?”

“It is bitter—bitter,” she answered;

“But I like it
“Because it is bitter,
“And because it is my heart.”

That's beautiful, David :)
Thank you for that.
I've not had time lately to write or draw a lot, but I should do soon.
Also because my internet has finally been resurrected after dying from the unusual hot weather.

That was an adapted poem that I read in a Steven King novel years ago, your post immediately reminded me of it. Here is the original:


And yeah, heat and especially humidity can wreak havoc on electronics!
