Quote
This is the great and terrifying truth about the creative life: Anything we make — all this longing for beauty and meaning, all these reckonings and raptures, these most passionate and personal fragments of being — is just a tiny seed compacting everything we are, blown into the wind that is the world.
Maria Popova, from “Rebecca Solnit on Writing, Gardening, and the Life of the Mind,” The Marginalian (24 June 2022)

Come fill this space between us that has your shape. Rescue me from this yearning.

Can you miss a person you’ve never met?
Can you ache for a place you’ve never been?
Can you thirst for a taste you’ve never had?
Each day I feel this in my shrivelled soul,
And wonder what it is I’m lacking here.

reverie
-
summer whispers in the wind
i remember the taste of ocean-salted skin
i remember her fingers digging into wet sand
her moans in rhythm with the tide
as i ride her with my hand
i remember stars filling her eyes
ecstasy by moonlight
staying up throughout the night
so as not to miss the break of dawn
glorious hues painted across our horizon
a moment of time
an eternity
softly, summer touches my cheek
i awaken from my reverie

i am a simple person.
if someone tells me that they were thinking of me, i would bask in that softness and confirmation for months.

Quote
What is it my mind wants to get at, always extending, hungering, looking back, always tearing open again its own modernity, as if each thought is more than the little present moment it sounds like, but, raised at an angle, piercing me, having me imagine, to build such antique violences in my head, it is a thorn? This moss has been growing for ages now, can do nothing but snag and grow   …    What is it the mind won’t unsee, beautiful flaw?
Ricky Laurentiis, from “Writing an Elegy,” Poetry (July/August 2014)

oh to stroke her hair... to hold her face in my palms and brush my finger against her lips, to hold her hand when she’s cold and kiss her on the forehead... oh to gift her a flower found on the ground... and to smile when she speaks... oh to kiss her on the neck and wrap my arms around her waist... oh to be close to her
