Aphorisms by David Giannini

Thanks to Jim Finnegan, proprietor of the ursprache blog and author of the aphoristically amazing Tramp Freighter, for alerting me to 42 Aphoristics by David Giannini, published recently in Talisman:

Some echoes are spitefully returned
to themselves unheard

Who marinate in spotlights
are condemned to be burnt

Infinity is the last
of its kind


Let your own arms hold
you first

Down close to certain flowers
all excesses are sufficiencies


Wit defies death
but death defines wit
