Favorite Quote:
"I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars, and the pismire is equally perfect, and a grain of sand, and the egg of the wren, and the tree-toad is a chef-d'ouevre for the highest, and the running blackberry would adorn the parlors of heave, and the narrowest hinge in my hand puts to scorn all machinery, and the cow crunching with drepress'd head surpasses any statue, and a mouse is miracle enough to stagger sextillions of infidels." by Walt Whitman

Waves of lace,
with such ease and grace.
But how come
I do not feel secure in your arms?
The fresh breathe
from the morning longs..

With no second to spare,
no thought to think,
my flesh begins to peel
to show it all is not real.

There is no I,
nor you,
nothing but a we.
