I would like to examine the cumaean sibyl through the lens of a phrase decayed through a repetitive everyday ritual of care as an act of resistance to the aging body. - Angeli Sion

I have seen with my own eyes the sibyl hanging in a jar, and when the boys asked her. What do you want? She answered, I want to die.
-- On Cumaean Sibyl, Petronius in Satyricon, epigraph of T.S Eliots The Waste Land
