Sometimes I wish I could be the kind of writer who takes a whole lot of drugs until the matter of her consciousness is stripped away and nothing but the bare hard spine of her psyche is left and she no longer has any obligations to the world.
For "IS" and "IS-NOT" though with Rule and Line,
And, "UP-AND-DOWN" without, I could define,
I yet in all I only cared to know,
Was never deep in anything but--Wine.
