on glass and imagery, pt. 2

“I lie in bed, still trembling. You can wet the rim of a glass and run your finger around the rim and it will make a sound. This is what I feel like: the sound of glass. I feel like the word shatter. I want to be with someone.” ~Margaret Atwood, “The Handmaid’s Tale”

 

{Atwood’s writing is wonderfully eerie. I recommend reading her works.}
