The Ashes of Pasolini


“But while I own history,
it owns me; it illumines me.
But what use is such a light?”
—Pier Paolo Pasolini, The
Ashes of Gramsci 

Life and literature—
Pasolini bound them
together so close that

He confused them—
canceling each other
out like Dante

Pasolini was reborn—
as a civil poet with 
his own Inferno

Something like us—
our new gay utopia 
a negative theology
