Be watchful of every action closely of a man who talks often in words about the importance of success, happiness, joy, pleasure, enjoyment and the respect for woman in life to know about his true nature and hidden intention.

When she was a child, my love carried a road-map in her hand the way other girls carried handkerchiefs.

I sat up in the strange bed fearing it had been a dream, afraid I would never see her again. Not because I wanted anything from her, only her presence. The disappearance of the presence of beauty is the most despairing of events on this time-wheel of ours that rolls onward towards death.

All I want in this life are three…
a moonlit beach on the starlit sea,
a breath of opium,
and thee.

Oh, Al, shut up! Stop criticizing me! First I’m criticized for being a prude and sounding like a social worker or something, then I’m criticized for looking like a cheap broad. How am I supposed to live? Under the water or something, coming up only to say ‘I beg your pardon if I disturb you by coming up for air. I’ll do my best to remain submerged.
