Favorite Quote:
"Hope and Memory have one daughter and her name is Art, and she has built her dwelling far from the desperate field where men hang out their garments upon forked boughs to be banners of battle. O beloved daughter of Hope and Memory, be with me for a little."
- The Celtic Twilight, W. B. Yeats

melancholic melodies wander
to me and I
inhale their uncertainty.

they leave a bitter taste
in my mouth.
I try to rinse it clean

it casts grey the sky across
the landscape. the clouds sheet,
stretched across the sky like
ripping dough.

to fix, add water
one teaspoon at a time
until smooth.
there are not enough spoons.

painfully dry,
I abandon,

leave it dry, grey, bitter,

leave alone.
