Francesca Lia Block
“He squinted up at the straining muscular backs of the stone men supporing the dome. "You'll have to take me to some museums," he said. He was being the young man on the road, following the sun because gray weather made him suicidal, writing his poetry in his mind in diners and gas station men's rooms across the country. "But I did see a show of Hopper once. And I like his light. It was kind of lonely or something.

Or, "The world's a mess, it's in my kiss,' like John and Exene say," he mumbled. We were in a leather store on Market Street being punks on acid with skunk-striped hair and steel-toed boots.”
Francesca Lia Block, Echo

John Barth, Lost in the Funhouse

“Listen to the sadness,
the echoes in my mind,
the place where I usually hide,
but now I cannot find.
Why had it happened?
What had I done?
Where was I going?
Now I'm on the run.
Hiding from the echoes,
the pounding in my ears,
the beatings getting louder,
it isn't death, I fear!”
Anthony T. Hincks
