Lines I love today..

“Girl, your young loveliness is a white swan winging above me, casual in triumph.” – Glanz-Leyeles

“In every one of your wrinkles I lie hidden, I listened to you cough and shiver, but no one should hear you breathe- since here, in a corner, covered with earth, also lie my bones.” – Abraham Sutskever

“Like a thumb print on glass, you hover in daylight, marking the sky with a scar of midnight.” -Tess Gallagher

“Every ball is a bloody, beautiful mask of powerful people. We make up pretzels. I always did like chickens.” -Tomaž Šalamun

“The wheel is not only the most beautiful discovery of mankind but the only one as well/ there is the sun which turns/ there is the earth which turns/ there is your face which rolls back and forth around the axis of your neck when you weep” – Michael Benedikt

“Let the people who never find true love keep saying that there’s no such thing. Their faith will make it easier for them to live and die.” -Wislawa Szymborska

“And this is for the wizard who swallows his tears like diamonds lost in the caves of his gentle throat. The music will consume your sadness if you keep singing.”- Jessica Hagedorn
