From Passive Aggressive Notes:

Ever wondered what it would be like sharing an office with William Carlos Williams?

First with the plums, now lemons? Seriously, Bill?

I hope you enjoyed the half lemon I had just taken out of the fridge. Next time buy your own. We all Work for ourselves not to feed Strangers.

And by the way, I’d like my red wheelbarrow back, please. (So much depends upon it, after all.)

HELP YOURSELF But NOT to the Wheelbarrow (like last year) please!

"Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems."
Rainer Maria Rilke (via litverve)
"Let’s face it, honey, my verse is terribly dated—as anything once fashionable is dreadful now. I gave it up, knowing it wasn’t getting any better, but nobody seemed to notice my magnificent gesture."
Dorothy Parker is always the best (via beatonna)
"When you find a man
Who transforms
Every part of you
Into poetry,
Who makes each one of your hairs
Into a poem,
When you find a man,
Capable,
As I am
Of bathing and adorning you
With poetry,
I will beg you
To follow him without hesitation,
It is not important
That you belong to me or him
But that you belong to poetry."
Nizar Kabbani, “When you find a man”, trans. Bassam K. Frangieh and Clementina R. Brown (via litverve)

Once upon a midnight DEAL WITH IT.

I give a fuck, nevermore.

merely a bro, nothing more.

#suddenly there came a swagging as of someone gangsta rapping #rapping at my chamber door

Quoth the raven, “Swag galore”



#edgar allan bro

not one fuck found, nay beneath the floorboards
