Favorite Quote:
“You see I kept asking myself then: why am I so stupid that if others are stupid—and I know they are—yet I won't be wiser?”
― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment

I hear the birds call.
Witnessing the night's slow dim,
I see shadows bare.

They are very grim.
Tall they stand in nearing death.
Such dark beauty steals...

Takes my scanty breath.
Sun's blood spills over to ease;
Their grim nature dies.

Day does seek to please.
It warms dark and crumbling bones.
Bird's song softens pain.
