Birthday Girl [versão 0.04]
Nesta mão que escreve afunda-se a lua, e de alto a baixo, em tuas grutas obscuras, essa lua tece as ramas de um sangue mais salgado e profundo. ... A idade que escrevo escreve-se num braço fincado em ti, uma veia dentro da tua árvore. Ou um filão ardido de ponto a ponta da figura cavada no espelho. Ou ainda a fenda na fronte por onde começa a estrela animal.
Aphrodite's - Venus seductions and temptations were a constant source of pleasure and danger for both gods and mortals. Those who fell under her spell were robbed of their wits and enticed into actions they would not normally take when in full possession of their rational faculties. This combination of pleasure and danger was crucial to the nature of Aphrodite as a goddess. It may also be a reason why Greek and Roman conceptions of seduction were treated in such a negative light by early Christian leaders.
Aphrodite's dominion over harmony was, in part, because the expression of sexuality was necessary for both domestic and social harmony.
Gods and goddesses like Aphrodite were manifestations of the very principle of love and sexuality, completely abstracted from the act of procreation. Sex didn't exist solely for the sake of procreation and sexuality didn't exist as an evil temptation. Instead, they were part of the cycle of life and what it meant to be a human being. It is worth wondering how the world would look today if people worshipped gods which valued and promoted human sexuality rather than a single, patriarchal god which abhorred and repressed sexuality.

Os poros do teu vestido.
A luz salta às golfadas. A terra é alta. Dormes na minha insónia como o aroma entre os tendões da madeira fria. És uma faca cravada na minha vida secreta. E como estrelas duplas consanguíneas, luzimos de um para o outro nas trevas.
