I want to meet someone and take the time to really get to know her. I don't know how much time, but some. I don't want to rush into anything. It's easy, if you like someone and really enjoy her company, to get swept up in that. That can be beautiful and romantic and passionate but still, I think that some restraint is wise. Don't you?
I make art:
I play a little music
I write poetry
I tell jokes and I am witty.
I like to be serious sometimes
and talk about reality and art.
"The ground beneath my feet is nothing but an enormous unfolded newspaper. Sometimes a photograph comes by; it is a nondescript curiosity, and from the flowers there unifomly rises the smell, the good smell, of printer's ink. I heard it said in my youth that the smell of hot bread is intolerable to sick people, but I repeat that the flowers smell of printer's ink. The trees themselves are only more or less interesting minor news items: a fire here, a derailment there. As for the animals, they have long since withdrawn from the commerce of men; with these latter, women now have only episodic relations, that are like shop windows early in the morning when the head window dresser goes out into the street to see the effect of the waves of ribbon, the slots, the wheedling winks of mannequins. "
