"(...) the monster of Mr Cogito
has no measurements
it is difficult to describe
escapes definition

it is like an immense depression
spread out over the country

it can't be pierced
with a pen

with an argument
or spear

were it not for its suffocating weight
and the death it sends down
one would think
it is the hallucination
of a sick imagination
but it exists
for certain it exists

like carbon monoxide it fills
houses temples markets

poisons wells
destroys the structures of the mind
covers bread with mould

the proof of the existence of the monster
is its victims

it is not direct proof
but sufficient (...)"

"The Monster of Mr Cogito"
Zbigniew Herbert

then you are one of not many who thinks so ;) i was amazed how differently people interpretated it, and how much it didn't match with my intentions.

Thank you :rose:

It seems like the monster of Mr cogito try to hide in her look but we can yet see him.That's really intense
It must be interesting to see how a photo can bring to people so different feelings from your initial intentions

wonderful! and here's what it made me think of:

"Tyler asks, is this a problem for me?
I am Joe’s Clenching Bowels.
No, I say, it’s fine.
Put a gun to my head and paint the wall with my brains.
Just great, I say. Really."
