"you are tired (i think) of the puzzle of living and doing; and so am i. come with me, then, and we’ll leave it far and far away—" - e.e. cummings


Wicked scars cut face,

Mountain tops break flare open,

Nothing lasts time’s teeths.


The author's comments:
"This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down."
J.R.R.Tolkien
