Fragments

by Emily

These have been rattling around my thoughts lately, figured I’d better just share them.

“There are moments when the body is as numinous
as words, days that are the good flesh continuing”
-Meditations at Lagunitas, Robert Hass

“My home will have no windows doors or floors nor bricks or mortar. I care naught for them. My only home is in your arms and nowhere else”
-This Is For You, Rob Ryan

There are no stars and the porch light burns.

“For though I’m small, I know many things
And my body is an endless eye
Through which, unfortunately, I see everything.”
-Now, Gloria Fuertes

We on our backs staring at the stars above,
Talking about what we going to be when we grow up,
I said what you wanna be? She said, ‘Alive.'”
-“Da Art of Storytellin'”, Outkast
