"..But inside something gnaws at me; some presentiment, anxiety, dreams - or sleeplessness - melancholy, indifference - desire for life, and the next instant, desire for death; some kind of sweet peace, some kind of numbness, absent-mindedness..." Frederic Chopin

Dear me: Dear little brain pockets,

tiny feelers lodged deeply in

forgotten crevices, tiny shivers of light.

Dear stronghold: Dear warm, dry

safeness, undulations of soft sounds,

breaths of cotton, swinging lilts of deep timbered

voices, lullabies. Mustard seed, staining

its yellow tongue on my bulky limbs.

Oiled, greased, worm from loving, my

favorite stuffed animal, a blanket, solitude

and oneness and gentle sheltering.
