Anne Carson says to be seen feeling anything strips you naked…

“To feel anything
deranges you. To be seen
feeling anything strips you
naked. In the grip of it
pleasure or pain doesn’t
matter. You think what
will they do what new
power will they acquire if
they see me naked like
 If they see you
feeling. You have no idea
what. It’s not about them.
To be seen is the penalty.”

– Anne Carson, Red Doc
