Vita brevis. Ars longa.

Long ago, I said to him, "there is no science without fancy, as there is no art without fact."

"I have a notion that poetry is the highest form of self-deception," he replied. He was so often right.

With enough courage, you can do without a reputation.

donnaisblue    profile - diary
comments:  My abyss. I plunge into the depths of you.
a-iphigenia    profile - diary

quois    profile - diary
comments:  The maze.
jonathan    profile - diary
comments:  The hip, tracing where words are born--where the truth lies, in the moment; in catharsis, in momentum, in friction.
POETS    profile - diary
aquietboy    profile - diary
comments:  Leaning against the wall, guitar in hand, watching poems become lyric as the rain starts to fall.
brevity    profile - diary
comments:  The mandala/poem makes one realize there is more beauty to sand/words than just desert/writing.
contrivance    profile - diary

sahphire    profile - diary
comments:  She catches her O'Keefe dreams in metaphor word weaves and simile feathers.
KNOWNS    profile - diary
terpsichore    profile - diary
comments:  Welcome to the Left Bank of the Great American Desert. Even the Greeks can't compare to this Flood of Information.
namelessgirl    profile - diary
comments:  Her essays are reminiscent of Mark Twain. A flair for writing seems to run in the family. Oh, and steals boyfriends. This also appears genetic.
misparking    profile - diary
comments:  It has become evident that being a poet is a threat to all life insurance companies.
thallium    profile - diary
comments:  And thus we got down to Raskolnikov. If there is ubermensch, she's my uberwensch.

comments:  A private writing collab for us who missed the real thing. We are still writers, we are still poets, we are still cafe philosophers. Join us for the renaissance of Montparnasse.
kissntell    profile - diary
comments:  A public anthology of sensuality. Kiss a writer and she'll give you a proper fifteen minutes of fame.
suicideinc    profile - diary
comments:  A mirror, a dance, a silhouette--marvelous.
mytilene    profile - diary

sinslaidbare    profile - diary
comments:  So tell me.
JOURNALS    profile - diary
ilonina    profile - diary
comments:  Being a silly scholar beats being a cloistered intellectual any day. I mean, tscha, we have more shoes.

comments:  Never going to get old, either.
not-quite    profile - diary
comments:  Emotion. Concise and beautiful.
i-love-sex    profile - diary
