It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Weights strengthen the body,
Books strengthen the mind,
Poetry strengthens the soul.

Mayakovsky- FRANK O'HARA

Now I am quietly waiting for
the catastrophe of my personality
to seem beautiful again,
and interesting, and modern.
The country is grey and
brown and white in trees,
snows and skies of laughter
always diminishing, less funny
not just darker, not just grey.
It may be the coldest day of
the year, what does he think of
that? I mean, what do I? And if I do,
perhaps I am myself again.

“The paradox of being a professional artist. How we spend our lives trying to express ourselves well, but we have nothing to tell. We want creativity to be a system of cause and effect.”
