Melancholy III (1902) by Edvard Munch. Original from The Art Institute of Chicago. Digitally enhanced by rawpixel.

Save me not from
the hellish Inferno
Nor the inevitable,
maws of Death.

Save me not
from the dark Void,
Nor the deceits of Life.

Save not my soul
from eternal Damnation,
Or false hopes
of Paradise.

But save me,
oh, Champion,
Only from
the banalities
of Small Talk.

I hoard books. I live in a perpetual state of denial. I’m always curious. I’m getting old. What do i write about?
