14. "The axe is the healthiest implement that man ever handled, and is especially so for habitual writers and other sedentary workers, whose shoulders it throws back, expanding their chests, and opening their lungs.

She had never felt the slightest physical attraction towards him.

Was it love when somebody filled a space in your life that yawned inside you, once they had gone?'I did love laughing', thought Parminder. 'I really miss laughing.'And it was the memory of laughter that, at last, made the tears flow from her eyes. They trickled down her nose and into her coffee, where they made little bulletholes, swiftly erased. She was crying because she never seemed to laugh anymore (...)."

18. "The Recent PastPerhaps we ought to feel with more imagination.As today the sky 70 degrees above zero with lines fallingThe way September moves a lace curtain to be near a pear,The oddest device can't be usual. And that is whereThe pejorative sense of fear moves axles. In the starsThere is no longer any peace, emptied like a cup of coffeeBetween the blinding rain that interviews.You were my quintuplets when I decided to leave youOpening a picture book the pictures were all of grassSlowly the book was on fire, you the readerSitting with specs full of smoke exclaimedHow it was a rhyme for "brick" or "redder."The next chapter told all about a brook.You were beginning to see the relation when a tidal waveArrived with sinking ships that spelled out "Aladdin."I thought about the Arab boy in his caveBut the thoughts came faster than advice.If you knew that snow was a still toboggan in spaceThe print could rhyme with "fallen star."
Author: John Ashbery

To dust the hands what use to stroke my breast; to dust the arms what hold me when I cried; to dust where his soft lips were and his chest what curved its warm against my back at night. From the poem "Dinah's Lament" (15)"
