We have love and made love before But not like this.
— Elizabeth Sargent, from “We Poets”
Your shoes piled up with mine, and the heat comes on, makes a simple noise, a dog-yawn. People have done this before, but not us.
— Ada Limón, from “During the Impossible Age of Everyone”
I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm, your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm, yes many loved before us, I know that we are not new
— Leonard Cohen, from “Hey, That’s No Way to Say Goodbye”
“All lovers believe they are inventing love.”
— Anne Carson, from Eros the Bittersweet

I wish I could say everything in one word. I hate all the things that can happen between the beginning of a sentence and the end.

when hozier said "the only heaven i'll be sent to is when i'm alone with you" and leonard cohen said "but remember when i moved in you and the holy dove was moving too and every breath we drew was hallelujah" and when lana del rey said "when i'm down on my knees you're how i pray" then "sing me like a bible hymn"

Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.

‘I was riding a Greyhound from Montreal down to New York, a woman sitting across from me kept staring. Finally, I looked over. She smiled, said, “I know you.” I said, “Yeah, who am I?” She said, “You’re that actor from ‘The Graduate’ - you’re good, very good.” I thanked her.”
