Favorite Quote:
“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”


Everything should be made
As simple as possible
But not simpler

Scribbles on pages
At 3 in the morning
Tubes and bubbling vials
Of wasted ink
5 warm sausages
Shaking in catastrophic harmony

Rolling Princeton cheeks
Tattered piles of studious 20-year-olds
Flailing and falling and failing
To remain racing
Sprinting with the scratch of my identity
Smushed against a sheet
Of coffee-stained paper

I am jostled like a pinball
Scoring the correct scarlet points
Luck belongs to the weak

Blue ink, black ink
Spattered across walls
Neon modern art
A futuristic warning

Imagination is
More important than knowledge
