What You Taught Me

"Sounds made harmonies with premeditation; 
the spaces between them were as significant as the sounds."
-Virgina Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway



Wish for nothing larger
Than your own small heart
Or greater than a star;
Tame wild disappointment
With caress unmoved and cold
Make of it a parka
For your soul.

Discover the reason why
So tiny human midget
Exists at all
So scared unwise
But expect nothing. Live frugally
On surprise. 
 - Alice Walker
 


I find a fatal flaw
in the logic love
and go out of my head.

You, love, are a sinking stone
that will never elope.
Get use to the lonesome
-The Shins
