After Reading a Line About Love
“I am trying, but I just can’t see how it’s done.”
Oh, to be at once full, and hollow, as a bell,
to read sign by the light in your eyes.

After Reading a Line About Identity
“Who we wish to be is invariably part of who we are.”
What is that cricket chirping in my ear?
it coulda been different
it coulda been different.
you coulda been better
you coulda been better….

The id wants what it cannot have.
The super-ego denies the want of anything at all.
How such a thing does not die from doubt is a miracle
or something else we cannot comprehend.
