"The Main Floor Of Penn Station, Early,the First Commuters Arriving, Leaving,the Man Outstretched On His Coat,wide Circles Of Survivors Forming.He's Half In, Half Out Of His Clothes,being Kissed And Cardio-shocked,though He Was Likely Dead Before He Landed.This Goes On For Minutes, Minutes More,until The Medics Unhook The Vanished Heart,move Him Onto The Cot And Cover Himwith The Snow-depth Of A Sheetand Wheel Him The Fluorescent Lengthof The Hall Through Gray Freight Doorsthat Open On Their Own And Close At Will."

Today's Quote

You are part of my existence, part of myself. You have been in every line I have ever read, since I first came here, the rough common boy whose poor heart you wounded even then. You have been in every prospect I have ever seen since-on the river, on the sails of the ships, on the marshes, in the clouds, in the light, in the darkness, in the wind, in the woods, in the sea, in the streets. You have been the embodiment of every graceful fancy that my mind has ever become acquainted with."
