". . . And I was grown up, with your face on,
heating spice after spice to smoke out the smell of books, to burn
the taste buds off this bitten tongue, avoid ever speaking of you."
- Emily Berry, 'Her Inheritance'

"If you are not the free person you want to be you must find a place to tell the truth about that. To tell how things go for you."
- Anne Carson, 'Candor'

"I had a moment there
among the balustrades
and once that moment had expired
it graduated
from a moment to a life"
- Sophie Collins, 'Dear No. 24601'
