Emma Donoghue
“Stories are a different kind of true.”
Emma Donoghue, Room

Kurt Vonnegut
“We went to the New York World's Fair, saw what the past had been like, according to the Ford Motor Car Company and Walt Disney, saw what the future would be like, according to General Motors. And I asked myself about the present: how wide it was, how deep it was, how much was mine to keep.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Oscar Wilde
“I made art a philosophy, and philosophy an art: I altered the minds of men, and the colour of things: I awoke the imagination of my century so that it created myth and legend around me: I summed up all things in a phrase, all existence in an epigram: whatever I touched I made beautiful”
Oscar Wilde, De Profundis and Other Writings

Richard Siken
“We can do anything. It’s not because
our hearts are large, they’re not, it’s what we
struggle with. The attempt to say Come over. Bring
your friends. It’s a potluck, I’m making pork chops, I’m making
those long noodles you love so much.”
Richard Siken, Crush

          How it was late, and no one could sleep, the horses running
until they forget that they are horses.
                    It’s not like a tree where the roots have to end somewhere,
          it’s more like a song on a policeman’s radio,
                              how we rolled up the carpet so we could dance, and the days
were bright red, and every time we kissed there was another apple

Look at the light through the windowpane. That means it’s noon, that means

Caught (Drama)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: A rather corny but experimental piece that I wrote a very long time ago.
Oh, Look! (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: A very experimental poetry with a philosophical view on our mind.
Busy (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: Wrote this in this mist of all exams. Interpret it as you wish. I have myself already recieved four different interpretations :)
To Suffocate (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: Something I wrote quiet some time ago. I have no idea what posessed me to write it, it just happened. It's also a bit cheesy but if you understand it all, then you will get the point of it (such as the ending).
Rain (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: Another experimental piece that I wrote several years ago but this one about rain.
