"Mayakovsky" BY 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.


"Sometimes you're the dog at the veterinarian's, and sometimes you're the car driving away."

- Linda Sennett


Robin Hood: So, is it true, Doctor?
Doctor: Is what true?
Robin Hood: That in the future I am forgotten as a real man, I am but a legend?
Doctor: I'm afraid it is.
Robin Hood: Hm...... good. History's a burden. Stories can make us fly.
Doctor: I'm still having a little trouble believing yours, I'm afraid.
Robin Hood: Is it so hard to credit? That a man born into wealth and privilege should find the plight of the oppressed and weak too much to bear?
Doctor: I am not a hero.
Robin Hood: Well, neither am I, but if we both keep pretending to be, perhaps others will be heroes in our name. Perhaps, we will both be stories... and may those stories never end.
