Favorite Quote:
"Home is within you, or home is nowhere at all."--Hermann Hesse

Who am I?—To be marked by a clock—
whose perpetual indifference spins
and detracts from my mortality.
I gasp—cling—for—to—
that which had kept me spry, kept me breathing,
kept me for the Dream.
Now—I am left—wondering: What is right?
And wandering. An aberration. An apparition
of myself, and of all whose animus had been,
or is, or will be—lifeless.

The author's comments:
For Grandmother, who spent her last years wishing she had more.
