"I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it's these things I believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn't all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything"

to love is messiness
(for no star is composéd
of moulding, and i cannot
mould you for mine, my darling)
(for you are the star of the
       black black night
and the And of my heart
and the light sun splitting the
to touch
your cheek—
bodies spilling
like secrets, pool
          beneath the purple silk
of eyes, yours and
hands, mine
instability as the door
that opens to fro
and sideways because
to love is directionless
your laundry
all over the floor
