On Being Desired



To desire someone is to seek to force them, perhaps induce is a better word, to run the risk of significance. It is to stand before them naked and say–I want you to change my eyes and the course of my story.

For the one desired, to consider running this risk is a question of responsibility, though some have been reckless in this. It’s a question of responsibility precisely because beneath the calm

green of desire are the more probing questions of who we are, what we are about and of the sort of person we are without our cloths of conventions on.”

– Richard Ali.
