(Fugue 2033 by Louise Bourgeois, 1911-2010, American
sculptor and artist, known as The Spider Woman for her
large spider structures and web-like images)
Bhartrhari (570?-651?) was an Indian-born Sanskrit poet, who also wrote important works on the philosophy of language.
SHE WHO IS ALWAYS IN MY THOUGHTS
She who is always in my thoughts prefers
Another man, and does not think of me.
Yet he seeks for another’s love, not hers;
And some poor girl is grieving for my sake.
Why then, the devil take
Both her and him; and love; and her; and me.
