4. Minor Miracles
Taking the empty air
Deep in our lungs,
Warming it there,

Extracting from it
What our blood needs,

Then breathing it back
Out as sound
We've added meaning to.
 - Gregory Orr
from Ode to Words

  • ". . . as I have said often enough, I write for myself in multiplicate,
    a not unfamiliar phenomenon on the horizon of shimmering deserts."
    - Vladimir Nabokov
