Anthem by Ayn Rand

I love Denise Levertov. I've read this book at least 500 times, and nearly every other page has a dog ear.

By far my favorite collection of Franz Wright's poetry. The poem "Untitled" had a home on my wall for nearly a year of my life. I wrote it in Sharpie marker over my bed in big, proud letters. When you read it, you'll understand why.
