"I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am. I am. I am."

"Kiss me and you will see how important I am."

"If neurotic is wanting two mutually exclusive things at one and the same time, then I'm neurotic as hell. I'll be flying back and forth between one mutually exclusive thing and another for the rest of my days."

Sylvia Plath
(1932-10-27 – 1963-02-11)

So much like Sylvia, Iam. Iam. Iam.

Pinky Tuscadero

If everyone could be so confident and cool as Pinky Tuscadero, and snap their fingers, and be loved by Fonzi - well, true poetry is subjective...

When Nietzsche Wept

This may not be a poem, but it is certainly poetic. I was quite moved when I saw this in When Nietzsche Wept and thus was compelled to share it with you here.

"We were friends and have become strangers to each other.
This is as it ought to be.
We do not want either to conceal or obscure the fact
as if we had to be ashamed of it.
We are two ships,
each of which has its goal and its course.
And finally, Dr. Breuer, we have to become strangers to one another,
because it's the law to which we are subject."
