Wht is lust a?

by Paul Chan

×

"Lust fills the mind with maddening undeadness and shakes one to the bone with want and longing."

Lust fills the mind with maddening undeadness and shakes one to the bone with want and longing. The muscle is the mind captured by this foreign agent that comes when it comes and leaves just as swiftly. Is this why Christianity considers it a sin: that lust is without ceremonial dignity? Or is it merely that lust draws us into unveiling ourselves as beings following, without knowing, another law. But didn't Saint Paul write that law is sin? And that without law sin lies dead? Wht is lust a? expresses these questions in layered images and texts that aren't in themselves hot or bothered in any way.
