"The trouble with words is that you never know whose mouths they've been in."


"But I am going to put down on paper everything that springs to mind, my ideas with my memories, my impressions my dreams my whims, everything which passes through my thoughts and my soul - laughter and tears, white and black, sobs that well up in the heart and are then rolled out like pastry in sonorous periods; - and tears diluted in romantic metaphors."

-GUSTAVE FLAUBERT, Memoirs of a Madman

One afternoon the princess
looked up, and a new star shone.
She was mischievous,
and craved to get it down.

She wanted it for her breastpin,
to add to its décor,
with a poem and a pearl,
a feather and a flower.
