Guy Farmer - Poet and Joke Writer
I write about you all the time, I said aloud.
Every time I say “I,” it refers to you.
Louise Glück, from “Visitors From Abroad,” in Poetry (Vol. CCIII, No. 3, December 2013)

metaphorformetaphor:

I’m a  sad man now, and so I will remain: a man who stares suspiciously  at his eyes in the windowpane, who finds it hard to love himself,  who survives despite his indifference to his own life.

―Margaret Mazzantini, from Don’t Move (Anchor, 2005)
