Down there they are in love with everyone.
Into the phantom city she goes

that streets around her, love love love.
And still as she goes, around her feet
in shadow small quail are calling.

—Robert Kelly

"I’m keen to keep trying to achieve. What happens is that your abilities get better but your critical facilities get better too, so that no matter what you’re achieving, you’re always saying, ‘It could have been better.’ You could drive yourself crazy with it. So you say, this is the best I could do at this time."

—Jane Campion

When I find you,
I am going to turn the world inside out.
The rocks around you will melt,
your heart will fall from your body.

—Mary Oliver

What surety is there
That we will meet again,
On other worlds some
Future time undated.
I defy my body’s haste.
Without the promise
Of one more sweet encounter
I will not deign to die.

—Maya Angelou, 1928-2014

Hot flowers who come out of alleys at evenings
All alone I’m shut up in a soaking-wet flag
Fair flowers from these humid folds, these heartless flames,
Which one among you will dare to untangle me?

—Jean Genet

"The prison is one of the most important features of our image environment. This has caused us to take the existence of prisons for granted. The prison has become a key ingredient of our common sense. It is there, all around us. We do not question whether it should exist. It has become so much a part of our lives that it requires a great feat of the imagination to envision life beyond the prison."

—Angela K. Davis
