"Los Angeles" by Kamau Daáood

the angels here
have pigeons' wings
blue collars
washed in sweat
the common salt
in tears
tongues swirl
in a stew of cultures
singing asphalt songs
in the midst of seagulls
bebop atop
the San Andreas
a humble plate
of beings

"Pigeons at Dawn" by Charles Simic

Extraordinary efforts are being made
To hide things from us, my friend.
Some stay up into the wee hours
To search their souls.
Others undress each other in darkened rooms.

The creaky old elevator
Took us down to the icy cellar first
To show us a mop and a bucket
Before it deigned to ascend again
With a sigh of exasperation.

Under the vast, early-dawn sky
The city lay silent before us.
Everything on hold:
Rooftops and water towers,
Clouds and wisps of white smoke.

We must be patient, we told ourselves,
See if the pigeons will coo now
For the one who comes to her window
To feed them angel cake,
All but invisible, but for her slender arm.


If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies.

-Friedriche Neitzsche

"But she was suffocated by the roses that no one else saw - only their shadows showed on her lips and around her eyes."

"My heart is a teacup with hairline cracks. I feel like I have to walk real carefully so it won't get shaken and just all shatter and break."

"I wish I wasn't a girl who needed so much but a little free creature that slept in deserts and ran on clouds and lived on lilies."

- Francesca Lia Block

"I don't do anything with my life but romanticize and decay with indecision."

"O America what saints given vision are shrouded in junk their elegy a nameless hoodlum elegance leaning against death’s military garage."

- Allen Ginsberg
