Richard Siken
“          The blond boy in the red trunks is holding your head underwater
because he is trying to kill you,
                    and you deserve it, you do, and you know this,
                                        and you are ready to die in this swimming pool
          because you wanted to touch his hands and lips and this means
                                                                                your life is over anyway.
                              You’re in eighth grade. You know these things.
          You know how to ride a dirt bike, and you know how to do
                    long division,
and you know that a boy who likes boys is a dead boy, unless
                                                  he keeps his mouth shut, which is what you
                                                                                                              didn't do,
          because you are weak and hollow and it doesn't matter anymore.”
Richard Siken, Crush

Samuel Taylor Coleridge
“And all who heard should see them there,
And all should cry, Beware! Beware!
His flashing eyes, his floating hair!
Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread,
For he on honey-dew hath fed,
And drunk the milk of Paradise.”
Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Kubla Khan

Tennessee Williams
“I don't want realism. I want magic! Yes, yes, magic! I try to give that to people. I misrepresent things to them. I don't tell the truth, I tell what ought to be the truth. And it that's sinful, then let me be damned for it!”
Tennessee Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire

Richard Siken
“You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and he won’t tell you that he loves you, but he loves you. And you feel like you’ve done something terrible, like robbed a liquor store, or swallowed pills, or shoveled yourself a grave in the dirt, and you’re tired. You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and you’re trying not to tell him that you love him, and you’re trying to choke down the feeling, and you’re trembling, but he reaches over and he touches you, like a prayer for which no words exist, and you feel your heart taking root in your body, like you’ve discovered something you didn’t even have a name for.”
Richard Siken
