1. "My mouth blooms like a cut.I've been wronged all year, tediousnights, nothing but rough elbows in themand delicate boxes of Kleenex calling crybabycrybaby, you fool! Before today my body was useless.Now it's tearing at its square corners.It's tearing old Mary's garments off, knot by knotand see - Now it's shot full of these electric bolts.Zing! A resurrection! Once it was a boat, quite woodenand with no business, no salt water under itand in need of some paint. It was no morethan a group of boards. But you hoisted her, rigged her.She's been elected.My nerves are turned on. I hear them likemusical instruments. Where there was silencethe drums, the strings are incurably playing. You did this.Pure genius at work. Darling, the composer has steppedinto fire."

4. "As she bends for a Kleenex in the dark, I am thinking of other girls: the girl I loved who fell in love with a lion--she lost her head over it--we just necked a lot; of the girl who fell in love with the tightrope, got addicted to getting high wired and nothing else was enough; all the beautiful, damaged women who have come through my life and I wonder what would have happened if I'd met them sooner, what they were like before they were so badly wounded. All this time I thought I'd been kissing, but maybe I'm always doing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, kissing dead girls in hopes that the heart will start again. Where there's breath, I've heard, there's hope."

Inching backward out of the car on her knees, she caught a glimpse of one last bit of trash she'd missed hiding under the driver's seat. Lowering her chest to the floor, she stretched her arm under the seat as far as it would go. She grabbed the item and pulled it out and raised herself up from her crouched position. She took one look at the used condom swinging from her fingers, screamed and flung it across the top of the front seat, where it stuck to the air conditioner vents on the dash. She knelt there staring at the thin latex mess, a million scenarios racing through her mind."
