“From 'the lesson of the moth':

out of his philosophy
he went and immolated himself
on a patent cigar lighter
i do not agree with him
myself i would rather have
half the happiness and twice
the longevity

but at the same time i wish
there was something i wanted
as badly as he wanted to fry himself”
Don Marquis, Archy and Mehitabel

“my youth i shall never forget
but there s nothing i really regret
