Nunca quise mariposas clavadas en un cartón; busco una ecología poética, atisbarme y a veces reconocerme, desde mundos diferentes, desde cosas que solo los poemas no habían olvidado y me guardaban como viejas fotografías fieles .

from Save Twilight by Julio Cortàzar

I never wanted butterflies pinned to a board.  I’m looking for a poetic ecology, to observe myself and at times recognize myself in different worlds, in things that only the poems haven’t forgotten and have saved for me like faithful old photographs. (translation by Stephen Kessler)

Sunday Sentence: The sentence(s) that touched me this week, out of context and without commentary. Inspired by David Abrams at The Quivering Pen.
