Ralph Gibson, Refractions, 2005
"These days I just can't seem to say what I mean. I just can't. Every time I try to say
something, it misses the point. Either that or I end up saying the opposite of what
I mean. The more I try to get it right the more mixed up it gets. Sometimes I can't
even remember what I was trying to say in the first place. It's like my body's split
in two and one of me is chasing the other me around a big pillar. We're running
circles around it. The other me has the right words, but I can never catch her."
Haruki Murakami, Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman, 2006
