“I read somewhere
that all this -
the people, the animals,
the mountains, the rivers -
is just God dreaming.
I wish he'd wake the fuck up.”
Margaret Wild, Jinx

“There are woolvs in the sitee. Oh, yes!
In the streets. In the parks. In the allees.
In shops. in rustee playgrounds.
in howses rite next dor.

And they will kum.
they will kum for me and for yoo
and for yor bruthers and sisters,
yor muthers and fathers. yor arnts and unkils.
yor grandfathers and grandmuthers.

No won is spared.”
Margaret Wild, Woolvs in the Sitee

“Fly Dog, fly! I will be your missing eye, and you will be my wings.”
