Favorite Quote:
You are not at all like my rose," he said. "As yet you are nothing. No one has tamed you, and you have tamed no one. You are like my fox when I first knew him. He was only a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But I have made him my friend, and now he is unique in all the world.


Churning, turning
Up and down
Fluttering within his
Calcium cage

Steady waterwheel
Lovely servant
Mill life
Through my being

Always a worker
Never to rest
You seem enslaved
Into my servitude

Dear reader
Silly reader
You only see
Our public lie
Of a servant beaten torn
Struggling with life

Crumple your brow
Purse your lips
And see the truth beneath
The truest of true friends are we
My faithful pump and I
