Mary Shelley (b. Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin)
B. 8.30.1797 Somers Town, England / D. 2.1.1851 London
Brain Tumor

I keep thinking about Prometheus and how he doesn’t get enough credit
not even a cult to the guy
not even an internet cult without an .org
when what a change was made
the next day in the world after fire no one could remember a thing about the day before
such unpleasantness no longer mattered
given a fresh present of warmth, light, and savors, everybody moved on
not even an action movie
not even a Victor Mature movie with scale model temples
what ingratitude looks like:
an atlas—look for Prometheus among the continents and countries—or try any phone book
but such are the vicarious effects of torture
given a strong enough illustration, everybody backs down.
