Legion. An amalgamated journal.

He Swears

Every so often he swears to start a finer life.
But when night comes with its own counsels,
its compromises, and its promises;
but when night comes with its own vigor
of the body, craving and seeking, he returns,
forlorn, to the same fatal joy.

C.P. Cavafy (trans. from the Greek by R. Dalven)

Hello, Legion. I’ve returned.
