"Metaphysics is the intellectual promiscuity of people who have no physics."*

It's the sort of thing that is so pithy one wants to believe it just to be able to say it with conviction.

*Adapted from a remark by Norman Mailer on the nature of sentimentality in his review of Lyndon Johnson's My Hope for America.

Truth regulates
as justice,

My poems groan
under my emotions,
which pale
beside my feelings,
which cower
before your beauty.

God made
your body
to keep
the world
from breaking
your heart.
