i like a lot of quotes.
"avant-garde is french for bull" --john lennon.
"nothing recedes like progress" --e.e.cummings

i've got like 120 quotes taped on to my wall. it's hard to choose.

Sometimes I wonder
where did you go
and why I didn’t know
But you were always
a mystery to me
always just a theory

I am always looking
always in the woods
listening for your air
and searching for
your breath

But where can I find you
where should I go
how will I know which
cave to brave
and which tree to chop
when you haven’t
left me a sign
of you

How can I
keep searching
when I’m looking
through space

for someone I love
who doesn’t want to be found?

based off of the quote “How will it be to lie in the sky without roof or door and wind for an eye With a cloud for shift how will I hide?” —May Swenson (poem: Question)
