"Culture in general is very lazy and lacking in enthusiasm. I think people tap into the easiest and cheapest form of entertainment, whether its reality TV or spending hours and hours on the Internet and social media, which I think deadens people. You really have to be engaged in the world to be a constantly growing and evolving person. You have to be interested in art and literature and music and history and I think that’s a big order for most people to feel today, they just don’t seem to care anymore.” 
—Sandra Bernhard

Red Raft on Yellow River
When you give to gravity what you took from time and mistook for reason, when your dreams are, at last, let loose and topple back empty upon emptiness, when the mist of memory’s flight descends to close out the light the lids struggled to shutter for so few years, will you then want one last look before the chemistry of your vision is leached back into the earth and held fluid still? Will you?

Red Raft on Yellow River

When you give to gravity
what you took from time and mistook
for reason, when your dreams are, at last, let
loose and topple back empty
upon emptiness, when the mist
of memory’s flight descends to close out the light
the lids struggled to shutter for so few years, will you then want
one last look before the chemistry of your vision is leached
back into the earth
and held fluid still?
Will you?
