Favorite Quote:
Everywhere, man blames nature and fate, yet his fate is only the echo of his character and passions, his mistakes and his weaknesses

Don’t seduce me with Whitman
Or Cummings
Talk of nostalgia, history,
Or divinity

My hands grip the pages of a calendar
Each accompanying image has
a time of youth and old age
as the month advances day by day by hour

Time moves like a wounded animal
I show my teeth, but not to smile
The hourglass chokes in the silence
