“I waited to be hurt, because this was a form of hope.”
Lucy Ives, Impossible Views of the World

“and”
Lucy Ives, Loudermilk: Or, The Real Poet; Or, The Origin of the World

“How elaborate and important was his life, really -- with what kind of ease was he granted the ability not to think of me at all, and when he did not think of me, how did he smile when he recognised, somewhere at some slight distance from him in the ether of proximate human minds, my own unceasing thoughts of him?”
Lucy Ives, Impossible Views of the World
