Oh, Herman...

A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men;
And they come back to us as effects."-Herman Melville

A confession

Happy love songs often make me sad.
There's something wrong here.

I love ya, Frank. But something's gotta change.

He don't know he's beautiful

I am seriously smitten with this statue.
I don't care how old he is....
He's sensitive. Intelligent, I can tell. I met him in my Western Humanities and Culture 201 class.

First meeting: I literally gaped. He took my breath away, and all I could say was, "He has no idea how beautiful he is."



I want to carry you
and for you to carry me
the way voices are said to carry over water.

Just this morning on the shore,
I could hear two people talking quietly
in a rowboat on the far side of the lake.

They were talking about fishing,
then one changed the subject,
and, I swear, they began talking about you.

Billy Collins

that's all, folks
