About meThey used to call him "planespotter" because he spent more time leaning on his brush and staring up into space than he did actually working. They always remembered that, when they asked all the employees of the Parks Department for their suggestions about how they thought the parks could be improved, he suggested that all the grass should be concreted over, perhaps with spaces left for some trees. He thought this would make it very much easier to sweep up the dead leaves and the litter, so the parks would all look a lot tidier.

"This was I,
a sparrow.
I did my best;
farewell."

About my library"It is dangerous to leave written that which is badly written. A chance word, upon paper, may destroy the world. Watch carefully and erase, while the power is still yours, I say to myself, for all that is put down, once it escapes, may rot its way into a thousand minds, the corn become a black smut, and all libraries, of necessity, be burned to the ground as a consequence. Only one answer: write carelessly so that nothing that is not green will survive." WCW

"Poetry is concerned with using with abusing, with losing
with wanting, with denying with avoiding with adoring
with replacing the noun. It is doing that always
doing that, doing that and doing nothing but that.
Poetry is doing nothing but using losing refusing and
pleasing and betraying and caressing nouns. That is
what poetry does, that is what poetry has to do no
matter what kind of poetry it is. And there are a
great many kinds of poetry." Gertrude Stein
