catherine and david (and marita too)

"He would try to work today and would almost certainly fail. There had been too much emotion, too much damage, too much of everything and his changing of allegiance, no matter how sound it had seemed, no matter how it simplified things for him, was a grave and violent thing and this letter compounded the gravity and the violence."
-Ernest Hemingway, The Garden of Eden.

"He was not crazy; he'd never been crazy. He'd only seen and heard the world as it always was: no boundaries, only transitions through all distances and time."

Revolutionary Letter #4

Left to themselves people
grow their hair
Left to themselves they make love
sleep easily
share blankets, dope & children
they are no lazy or afraid
they plant seeds, they smile, they speak to one another. The word
coming into its own: touch of love
on the brain, the ear.
We return with the sea, the tides
we return as often as leaves, as numerous
as grass, gentle, insistent, we remember
the way,
out babies toddle barefoot thru the cities of the universe.

-Diane DiPrima, "Revolutionary Letter #4," The Sixties Papers
