We're the only creatures that claim to be anything
then build a house of facts around the claim

I've come for vindication         No point in trying
to disguise it as a lesser wish         Wake up         stop
while you still know where you are         Put away
your elusive country         Give your sleep a rest
 - Dionisio D. Martinez
from Rest Before You Sleep

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