In sotte voce

Artist by nature Soul intemperate Inclined to drift conceive and flight of fancy Voice of darkness crescendo dwellings deep Too ugly or lovely too high low bright piercing unbearable unspeakable inappropriate
Unmanageable

Inseparable from truest self

Denied Driven Pummeled to conform Guided by the guided masses To square rooms milk toast tidy hedgerows And acts of submission Clocking in clocking out marriage to a woman without the merest hint of a soul Yet clothed always in the finest Ever prepared eternally equipped with just the Right thing to say in any given circumstance Any man’s asset Hair coiffed in place Long lacquered spikes painted in muted pastels That reflect In the fading autumn light Lukewarm living settling up and settling down Five o’clock cocktail hour with the Joneses Garage with house attached Labels on children’s clothes (One boy, one girl) Track meets PTA dentist appointments and college funds Scrimping, saving, spending

Starving

In sotto voce
