    "In an age when nations and individuals routinely exchange murder for murder, when the healing grace of authentic spirituality is usurped by the divisive politics of religious organizations, and when broken hearts bleed pain in darkness without the relief of compassion, the voice of an exceptional poet producing exceptional work is not something the world can afford to dismiss."

    The boys with their feet on the desks know that the easiest murder case in the world to break is the one somebody tried to get very cute with; the one that really bothers them is the murder somebody only thought of two minutes before he pulled it off.

    You've committed murder just as much as Hélène did. You killed a fly with a human head, she killed a human with a fly head. If she murdered so did you.

    I love how people view love as the ultimate force in this world. I do say that it is true, love is the ultimate force in this world, but that of destruction. For the love of your country, your people, your family, you go to war and murder each other for some unnamed masters. You destroy your very personality and being just so the one you are in love with will notice you. All of this self destruction, in the name of love.

    'Some people are confused. They ask he's really not a saint he's really more of a devil. But I give my usual excuse, and say that I invented perpetual motion- -and all saints are devils. I just don't want to be martyred. Martyr is murder. So the only saint is saint devil'.
    (- -Nathan Coppedge, June 2015.)

    Sleep demands of us a guilty immunity. There is not one of us who, given an eternal incognito, a thumbprint nowhere set against our souls, would not commit rape, murder and all abominations.
    (Djuna Barnes (1892-1982), U.S. author, poet, columnist. Doctor, in Nightwood, ch. 5 (1936).)
