Ellen Bass - Ode To The God Of Atheists

The god of atheists won’t burn you at the stake
or pry off your fingernails. Nor will it make you
bow or beg, rake your skin with thorns,
or buy gold leaf and stained-glass windows.
It won’t insist you fast or twist
the shape of your sexual hunger.
There are no wars fought for it, no women stoned for it.
You don’t have to veil your face for it
or bloody your knees.
You don’t have to sing.

 

The plums that bloom extravagantly,
the dolphins that stitch sky to sea,
each pebble and fern, pond and fish
are yours whether or not you believe.

 

When fog is ripped away
just as a rust red thumb slides across the moon,
the god of atheists isn’t rewarding you
for waking up in the middle of the night
and shivering barefoot in the field.

 

This god is not moved by the musk
of incense or bowls of oranges,
the mask brushed with cochineal,
polished rib of the lion.
Eat the macerated leaves
of the sacred plant. Dance
till the stars blur to a spangly river.
Rain, if it comes, will come.
This god loves the virus as much as the child.

Hoje na Gulbenkian

Cantora catalã, Sílvia Pérez Cruz revelou-se com a edição do seu álbum de estreia, 11 de Novembre (2012), tendo obtido rapidamente uma reputação internacional com a espantosa expressividade da sua voz. Casando música tradicional da Galiza e da Catalunha com uma visão própria do flamenco, atravessado pelo jazz e pela influência da música sul-americana, o canto de Pérez Cruz encerra uma imensa riqueza melódica. Um delicado cenário de intimismo valeu-lhe os Maiores elogios com a edição de Granada (2014) assinado em duo com Raül Fernández Miró.

A Good Man Is Hard To Find

In April of 1959–five years before her death at the age of 39 from lupus–O’Connor ventured away from her secluded family farm in Milledgeville, Georgia, to give a reading at Vanderbilt University. She read one of her most famous and unsettling stories, “A Good Man is Hard to Find.” The audio, accessible above, is one of two known recordings of the author reading that story. (The other, from a 1957 appearance at Notre Dame University, can be heard here.)
