Order, Chaos and I

If three plus one
Can be two,
Or fourteen,
Then reason
Is madness.

If two can
Be one,
Then I am
In love or
Insane
Or dreaming.

Philip K. Dick
“We are served by organic ghosts, he thought, who, speaking and writing, pass through this our new environment. Watching, wise, physical ghosts from the full-life world, elements of which have become for us invading but agreeable splinters of a substance that pulsates like a former heart.”
Philip K. Dick, Ubik

Rollo May
“The opposite of courage in our society is not cowardice, it's conformity.”
Rollo May

Roberto Bolaño
“Books are finite, sexual encounters are finite, but the desire to read and to fuck is infinite; it surpasses our own deaths, our fears, our hopes for peace.”
Roberto Bolano

David Mitchell
“Our lives are not our own. We are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.”
David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

Susan Sontag
“My library is an archive of longings.”
Susan Sontag, As Consciousness is Harnessed to Flesh: Journals and Notebooks, 1964-1980

Apparently, Last Night Part 3 (Romance)

Description: Baby baby, where did our love go? Much of the prose and poetry in this folder is an experiment in a topic about impossible love or alien love or unrequited love. If they start to work for me, I might try to develop them into a more ambitious idea. I've tried to dig into 35 years of relationships for what little inspiration I could glean. I hope nobody takes offence at them. Love and lust manifest themselves in many ways, some of them impossible, improbable, impractical, inconvenient or just plain unexpected.
