Copper and money tanks
Money and steel prows
Beat scum,
The stocks of brambles raise.
Currents of the moor,
And immense ruts of the backward flow,
Slip by circularly towards the east,
Towards the pillars of the forest,
Towards the barrels of the pier,
Whose angle is run up against by swirls of light.

Arthur Rimbaud

The Secret of Authority

...I empty my house of newspapers,
radio, television, all these
feeble striptease shows of social disgrace.
I don't lift a finger
against the hands that slap our intelligence,
I don't say a word
against the tramping that deafens the beat of the heart.
I see clearly, or so I imagine,
what's done in the inner sanctum, the placard faces
with nothing behind them...

...from the love I thought had to taste like love; from the love I thought I had to love like love. 5. Out of the totality of: I came from a family full of women; I came from a family full of believers; I came from a pack of witches - I'm just waiting to conjure my powers; I came from a legacy of lovers - I'm just waiting to seduce my seducer; I came from a pride of proud women, and we take good care of our young. 6. As being other or another than: He couldn't tell me from his mother; he couldn't tell me from his sister; he couldn't tell me from the last woman he had before me, and why should he - we're all the same woman...

"Our faith in the present dies out long before our faith in the future."

Benedict's work continues to hold its value as the strengths of her anthropological approach are appreciated by those professionals who share her concern with the impact on data of the researcher's position in her home society as well as with the impact on an audience of reported facts.
