there is an italo calvino short story called crystals (recommend 10/10), in which he relates how the world, our earth, turned one day from a tectonic, lucid mass of crystals, of polyhedrons, dodechohedrons, prisms, diamond trees all right angled & limpid, frozen streams of quartz, spinning mounted spheres of ruby, everything coiled & gleaming, how one day this mass turned quite suddenly from precision & translucency to chaos, gummy, muddy, earthy chaos, and out of this disordered bog arose our monuments to our keenly latticed history, watches made with glass & metal to keep time, looming vitreous skyscrapers to simulate parallel lines, an ersatz order that cannot mimic in its poor, reckless humanity the atomized & careful order of the serene crystal world that predated it, not in the least bit. the chaos of our existence persists, scraping in between our compositions, & although calvino is ultimately a master at conveying the perfect symmetry of change & static that defines our lives, he also did a pretty nice job at describing this wine - lucid, glasslike, simply human, soft, gooey, not quite ordered, still beautiful.
