On Friendship #31

"…and although I didn't have the words for it then, I knew that our real friendship, the heady love that comes of mystery, had ended. We spoke to each other at school, still, but with the polite reserve I heard in my mother's voice when she chatted with strangers." -Liza Kleinman, "What Went Wrong"

On Love #38

"'It's not enough, then, just to love.'" -Joanne Greenberg, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden

What Goodbye Feels Like

"…Goodbye, goodbye.
Nothing left
after the initial
blast but

some echo like this.
Only the faded
pieces of paper
etc." -Robert Creeley, "Some Afternoon"
