Un girasol que sigue a la luna.
Capacidad negativa

Maria Popova sobre la capacidad negativa de John Keats:


El concepto es una bella articulación de un sentimiento familiar: que la vida se trata de vivir las preguntas, que lo desconocido es lo que mueve a la ciencia, y que lo más hermoso que podemos experimentar es el misterio.

“I hate tricks. At the first sign of a trick or gimmick in a piece of fiction, a cheap trick or even an elaborate trick, I tend to look for cover. Tricks are ultimately boring, and I get bored easily, which may go along with my not having much of an attention span. But extremely clever chi-chi writing, or just plain tomfoolery writing, puts me to sleep. Writers don’t need tricks or gimmicks or even necessarily need to be the smartest fellows on the block. At the risk of appearing foolish, a writer sometimes needs to be able to just stand and gape at this or that thing- a sunset or an old shoe- in absolute and simple amazement.”―Raymond Carver; Fires: Essays, Poems, Stories

Los girasoles que siguen a la luna

Los girasoles que siguen a la luna
Las brújulas que apuntan hacia el sur
Los faros que sueñan con ser barcos
La espuma de las noches
Los caracoles veloces
Las ovejas negras que tienen buenas calificaciones
Las anclas con vocación de papalotes
Los cuentos que empiezan con: “Había dos veces, había tres veces…”
Los salmones que nadan con la corriente
Las sirenas que andan en bicicleta
Los fantasmas que se asustan
Las estrellas que brillan hacia dentro
Los relojes que solo marcan las horas felices
Los leones vegetarianos
Los vagabundos elegantes
Los instantes eternos
Los amores que se niegan a morir.

Nadie puede ser recompensado definitivamente, ni siquiera los premios Nobel. Pero nadie debería ser castigado de forma absoluta si es considerado culpable, y, con mayor razón, si puede ser inocente.
