~   خليل جبران ‎ Khalil Gibran   (via lanoireculture)

Before I gave up wondering why everything was a lot of nothing worth losing or getting back, I took out a jar of olives, a bottle of capers, a container of leftover tomato sauce with onions, put a generous portion of each in olive oil just hot enough but not too hot, along with some minced garlic and a whole can of anchovies, until the mixture smelled like a streetwalker’s sweat, then emptied it onto a half pound of penne, beautifully al dente, under a heap of grated pecorino romano in a wide bowl sprinkled with fresh chopped parsley. If you had been there, I would have given you half, and asked you whether its heavenly bitterness made you remember anything you had once loved.
