Vesper's Escape

  • "Crazy wisdom is ... wisdom that flouts taboos in order to undermine their power; wisdom that evolves when one, while refusing to avert one’s gaze from the sorrows and injustices of the world, insists on joy in spite of everything; wisdom that embraces risk and eschews security; wisdom that turns the tables on neurosis by lampooning it; the wisdom of those who neither seek authority nor willingly submit to it." -Tom Robbins
  • “…experience shapes us, randomness shapes us, the stars and weather, our own accommodations and rebellions….” –Adrienne Rich

it IS an impostor year! THEY have been screwing with the calendar and the clock since the days of ancient Rome, knowing full well that it's now how people spend their money that counts, but how they spend their time, and that they can't spend it the way they ought to if they don't know what time it actually is.

I love that line about sharp knives. Vesper, you may have cured me of my poetry-aversion. I still won't try writing it, as I think in big intimiating college-textbook paragraphs and poems just don't work for conveything that kind of thing, but I love the stuff you write.


thank you dok....that means a lot to me. :)

Devil Mood

You must teach me to have such ...fantastic thoughts! I love that poem, I really do!


I haven't been by in a LONG time...glad you're still here (and not on the moon yet)...

Just amazing honey.

Not that the Jetson knows anything but...

A good poem is the collaboration between the thought and the pen to prohibit the spaces that so often come between them.

This was a very good poem.
