“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

“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

“Sometimes she feels like a third gender-
preferring primary colors to pastels, the radio to singing. At least she's all mermaid: never gets tired of swimming, hates the thought of socks. -from "The Straight Forward Mermaid”
Matthea Harvey
