I know what is real and I will remember how to steal back what is mine.

The assignment was to fall in love.
The details were up to you.
The second part was
to include in the poem certain words,
words drawn from a specific text
on another subject altogether.

Louise Glück, from Prism

    • that’s what I think (or what he thinks) …less or more….. all the time…

      “I love you enormously. I’m spending a little time away from you—quite absurd and contingent. I would so like to see you, my stubborn little thing, and tell you my stories and hold your hand. You are my love, you good little being. Far from you I measure the nothingness of the flesh, and I am not having much fun.”

      Jean-Paul Sartre, from Witness to My Life: The Letters of Jean-Paul Sartre to Simone De Beauvoir
