Writing Quotes

My book is being made into a film.  The pages are being recycled into cellulose acetate fiber for use in the manufacture of transparent coating material.

More and more i find out.
Anything you're not fully open about, is something else to worry about.

Is the 'is' in Richard Brinsley Sheridan's quote 'Never say more than is necessary' necessary?

Someone will remember us
I say
even if in another time

Sappho translated by Anne Carson

Wouldnt it be wonderful
if all our letters could be published
in the future
in a more enlightened time

Then all the world could see
how in love we are

correspondence between WWII soldier Gilbert Bradley & sweetheart Gordon Bowsher

memories in photos
too easy to rewrite
left as lonely shadows
holding each other tight

with no spaces in between, no room for any
Call me crazy. Call the universe cruel.
Call my mother on the phone, with
an apology she’ll never believe. Call
me soulmate, I never believed in them
anyway. Call to ask how I’m doing.
Call for all of your kitchen dances
and hazey car kisses back. Call
my name in your sleep, call it when
you unravel.

You ask my why all of my writing sounds
sad, but you don't understand the way it
manifests. The way my words are strung
fairy lights, in an empty house at
midnight, trying to make all of the dark
edges beautiful again.
