Favorite Quote:
"..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

the ocean is a cradling thing with her
wrists exposed, baring her marble
teeth to the wind (who promises to be
calm but i know better).
me, all brain and much too full of
heart, begging.
i want stillness, the silence
before dreamless sleep, hair arcing for
the blooming springtime – i have left as
i came, unheard and unheard of –
the gentle froth of a great machine that
has swallowed me, whole and alone –
i drive with empty seats and keep the
windows up.
