“If there is no fog on the day you come home I will build a bonfire
So the smoke will make the cedars look the way you like them”
Matthea Harvey

“Don’t fret, dreamy spinning ones
with water falling from your faces.
It’s us you’re waiting for and we’re coming.”
Matthea Harvey, If the Tabloids Are True What Are You?

“Return is inevitable because we need something
To define ourselves against even if we know that
Whenever we want we can pull the plug and get out
Which is not the case with our own tighter confinement
Inside the body oh pity the bathtub but pity us too”
Matthea Harvey, Pity the Bathtub Its Forced Embrace of the Human Form
