2. "I like her. She makes life interesting. She, herself, is interesting, I suppose. She talks right from the heart. I appreciate her frankness and I like the fact that she doesn’t force the natural flow of a conversation. There’s personality in her words. She thus gets to the core of things and that’s important because with her — I can talk knowing that the talk is real! Oh believe me, it’s amazingly real!

  4. "The afternoons drone on, stagy and dazed.
    Dog-day cicadas exhume themselves, telegraph
    their terrible passions from tree to tree.
    Lacewings take wing from the uncut grass—
    in time with [the] orchestrated back and forth—
    and summer’s last mow smells of red
    wine or the first dark sex after
    betrayal, then forgiveness."

  12. "

    The mobile and the immobile flickering
    In the area between is and was are leaves,
    Leaves burnished in autumnal burnished trees

    And leaves in whirlings in the gutters, whirlings
    Around and away, resembling the presence of thought,
    Resembling the presences of thoughts, as if,

    In the end, in the whole psychology, the self,
    The town, the weather, in a casual litter,
    Together, said words of the world are the life of the world.
