“I have just realized that the stakes are myself
I have no other
ransom money, nothing to break or barter but my life”
Diane di Prima

“It is still news to her that passion
could steer her wrong
though she went down, a thousand times
strung out
across railroad tracks, off bridges
under cars, or stiff
glass bottle still in hand, hair soft
on greasy pillows, still it is
news she cannot follow love (his
burning footsteps in blue crystal
snow) & still
come out all right.”
Diane di Prima

“The only war is the war against the imagination.”
Diane di Prima
