Hourglass Museum by Kelli Russell Agodon
" At once simple and yet complex, which says a lot and means less, this collection left me breathless at times and at others scurrying for my pen and paper to riff on ideas shared. Completely fascinating, gripping and well worth the time. I'd say mo... " Read more of this review »

“Maybe if I could slip into Sylvia's mind, sort out the spices in her rack, alphabetize them and dust them off. Maybe then I'd understand how it's the little things that pull you under.”
Kelli Russell Agodon

“...look up and see the madness
organized in the stars.”
Kelli Russell Agodon, Hourglass Museum

“I don’t believe we should carry backup
plans in life’s suitcase—

they’re too easy to unpack
like living a life in yoga pants,
so comfortable our hips spread
into new timezones...”
Kelli Russell Agodon, Hourglass Museum

“let me live, love, and say it well in good sentences”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
Jorge Luis Borges

“Maybe if I could slip into Sylvia's mind, sort out the spices in her rack, alphabetize them and dust them off. Maybe then I'd understand how it's the little things that pull you under.”

“Dude, the place is filling up," I say. "It feels like we're living in the bottom half of an hourglass."
Like somehow we're running out of time.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Choke

“Science is the key to our future, and if you don’t believe in science, then you’re holding everybody back. And it’s fine if you as an adult want to run around pretending or claiming that you don’t believe in evolution, but if we educate a generation of people who don’t believe in science, that’s a recipe for disaster. We talk about the Internet. That comes from science. Weather forecasting. That comes from science. The main idea in all of biology is evolution. To not teach it to our young people is wrong.”
Bill Nye
