Pain made him whom he is;
The heart breaks once, like china, and the whole life yields to it.

It came from nowhere
like thunder or third parties.

For a city of unpredictabilities, her real map
is a tangling of all our lifelines.

The moment a feeling enters the body
you are vulnerable, become political.

I sometimes imagine us, each walking down our own street
toward the intersection without terror.
