Selections from “the alphabet blows through the open window”:

“Can a soul be made by wanting it?
This is, perhaps, how all things, and beings, are made.
I will seek at every moment to make a world new and exciting for all of us.”

“Let’s feed each other our laughter.
Let’s touch in ways that require us to make our own grammar of sensation.
And let’s care for this nameless, soft animal of our affection.”

“A soul must cling to each body until the hand of god dips like a ladle
into this primordial soup and lifts it away.
Who will speak out against military abortion?”
