“Sometimes naked
Sometimes human.
Sometimes scholar
Sometimes fool.
Thus they appear on Earth,
The free people.”



"One story, one road, now
is left: that it is.
And on this there are signs in plenty that,
being, it is ungenerated and indestructible,
whole, of one kind and unwavering,
and complete."




Stanley Kunitz

"It is also a language beyond language, a meta-medium—that is, metabolic, metaphoric, metamorphic. A poet's collected work is his book of changes. The great meditations on death have a curious exaltation. I suppose it comes from the realization, even on the threshold, that one isn't done with one's changes."

“There seems no escape from this necessity.” — Njabulo S. Ndebele
